What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending July 30, 2022
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 43%.
- A special congressional committee has spent weeks holding televised hearings about the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, but with apparently little effect on public opinion.
- By more than a four-to-one margin, Americans say the nation’s problem with opioid drugs is getting worse, not better – and they don’t think President Joe Biden is doing enough to stop it.
- Barely one-in-five voters think it would be good for Democrats if President Joe Biden seeks reelection in 2024, and most think Republicans are headed for victory in the November midterms.
- With gasoline prices still near an all-time high, voters want the government to boost domestic production, and trust Republicans more than Democrats by more than 2-to-1 on the issue.
- The 2022 midterm elections are now 102 days away, and Republicans have a five-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- Fewer than one-in-six Americans are vegetarians, but about twice as many have tried meatless substitute products.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of July 17-21, 2022, increased to 90.3, up more than two points from 87.7 two weeks earlier.
- Twenty-three percent (23%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
