What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 18, 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.
- With inflation near an all-time high and fear of a recession looming, economic issues are most important to American voters.
- Baseball is known as “America’s Pastime,” but less than half have even watched it on TV this season.
- While a majority of voters believe the congressional investigation of the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot is important, most will watch little if any of the committee’s televised hearings.
- Nearly half of voters believe President Joe Biden and Major League Baseball should apologize to Georgia after last year’s controversy over the state’s new election law.
- The 2022 midterm elections are now 144 days away, and Republicans have a five-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- Father’s Day is this Sunday, and Americans overwhelmingly believe dads still matter.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of June 5-9, 2022, decreased to 88.4, down nearly three points from 91.2 two weeks earlier.
- Twenty-three percent (23%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
