What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending July 16, 2022

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

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 42%.

- Are children seeing stuff in movies they aren’t ready to see? Most Americans think so.

- The U.S. Constitution is overwhelmingly admired by American voters, but most Democrats believe our national charter is tainted by racism and sexism

- While a majority of American voters still have a favorable opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court, Democrats have turned against the court and would support radical changes to the institution. 

- Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has captured nearly all of the eastern Donbas region, but American voters don’t believe Ukraine should be willing to give up territory in a negotiated peace with Russia.

- The 2022 midterm elections are now 116 days away, and Republicans have an eight-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

- An overwhelming majority of voters believe America is the best country in the world, even though many of them believe the country to be “systemically” racist and sexist.  

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of July 4-7, 2022, decreased to 88.7, down more than three points from 90.8 two weeks earlier.

- Nineteen percent (19%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
