What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending July 22, 2023
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 44%.
- Doubts about President Joe Biden’s ability to fulfill the duties of his office remain a concern for most voters, as the 2024 campaign approaches.
- Most voters don’t feel very well represented by Congress, and believe the federal government no longer has “the consent of the governed.”
- Former President Donald Trump remains the overwhelming favorite to win the Republican nomination next year.
- Barely one-in-five voters think affirmative action programs have been successful, and about two-thirds approve of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down racial favoritism in university admissions.
- Most voters approve of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling that declared President Joe Biden’s student loan debt cancellation unconstitutional.
- Even as President Joe Biden touts the success of “Bidenomics,” more Americans expect the economy to get worse over the next year than think it will improve.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of July 9-13, 2023, increased to 93.4, up more than two points from 91.2 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-two percent (32%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
