What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 10, 2023
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 43%.
- Although some Democrats have denounced President Joe Biden’s challengers for his party’s 2024 nomination as “fringe candidates,” voters overwhelmingly want Biden to debate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson.
- As House Republicans threaten contempt of Congress charges against Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray, a majority of voters suspect FBI officials tried to cover up a scandal involving President Joe Biden and his family.
- June is LGBTQ “Pride” month, which has made the popular Target discount store chain a focus of controversy this year, and almost half of regular Target shoppers believe corporations go overboard in celebrating Pride month.
- Most Republican voters like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, but when it comes to who should get the GOP’s 2024 nomination, they prefer former President Donald Trump by a 28-point margin.
- Voters remain concerned about inflation, and a plurality believe the recently passed deal to raise the federal debt limit will make the problem worse.
- Economic confidence increased to 97.2 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, more than nine points higher than May.
- Perhaps boosted by lower gasoline costs, more Americans this year say they’re planning a vacation this summer.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of May 28-June 1, 2023, increased to 90.5, up more than two points from 88.4 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-three percent (33%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction. Visit the Rasmussen Reports home page for the latest current polling coverage of events in the news. The page is updated several times each day.
