What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending July 29, 2023

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

-  President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 46%. 

-  Former President Trump is facing criminal prosecution in multiple cases, but a majority of voters don’t believe his legal problems will stop his campaign to win the presidency again in 2024 

- Of the top four figures in the U.S. House and Senate, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is viewed most favorably by voters.

Republican voters overwhelmingly favor former President Donald Trump as their party’s nominee in next year’s primaries.

- As the 2024 election shapes up as a rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, a large percentage of voters think the country is doomed if their preferred candidate loses. 

-  Although concerns about the abuse of opioid drugs have eased somewhat, by more than a 2-to-1 margin, Americans say the problem has gotten worse in the past year. 

- How hot is it this summer? Hot enough that nearly two-thirds of Americans suspect climate change is to blame

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