What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending January 27, 2024

In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 45%.

- By a wide margin, more voters say “Bidenomics” will help Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential campaign than believe it will help Joe Biden win reelection. 

- Despite former President Donald Trump’s wide lead over his Republican challengers, most voters believe it’s too early for his rivals to quit.

Increasing domestic energy production remains a priority for American voters, who trust Republicans more than Democrats to deal with the issue. 

- More than half of voters rate President Joe Biden as doing a poor job on immigration, and agree with a leading Republican’s claim that the president’s policy has produced “catastrophe” at the border.

- At a time when voters are deeply divided on many issues, they are overwhelmingly united in their opposition to government subsidies for business.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for January increased to 89.1, up more than three points from 85.4 in December. 

- Despite claims by activists that it’s wrong for sports teams to have Native American mascots, an overwhelming majority of Americans don’t think the Kansas City Chiefs or Atlanta Braves should change their names.

- Thirty-two percent (32%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
