What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls Week Ending July 8, 2023

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

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

- Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced his bid for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination in April, but few voters view him as a contender, and many don’t seem to know who he is. 

- President Joe Biden last week once again denied being involved in his son Hunter’s business deals with foreigners, but a majority of voters still suspect he was. 

- A majority of voters disapprove of a plea bargain that kept Hunter Biden out of federal prison, and suspect favoritism for President Joe Biden’s son. 

- After 247 years, the Fourth of July remains one of our most important holidays, according to a majority of Americans. 

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of June 11-15, 2023, increased to 91.2, up more than five points from 85.7 two weeks earlier. 

- Most Americans say they’re not going to the movies as often as they did a few years ago, and the declining quality of Hollywood films seems to be a major reason

- When tracking President Biden’s job approval people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. 

- Economic confidence increased to 100.1 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, nearly three points higher than June.

- Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
