What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending June 29, 2024

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

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 44%.

- More voters agree with a negative message about former President Donald Trump than with a positive message about President Joe Biden.

- Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is the favorite to be former President Donald Trump’s vice-presidential running mate, but for most voters, the VP choice doesn’t really matter.

Confidence that Social Security will pay out its promised benefits remains high, and voters trust Republicans slightly more than Democrats to deal with the issue.

- With the earliest-ever presidential debate scheduled for Thursday, former President Donald Trump is favored over incumbent President Joe Biden as the debate winner by a 10-point margin. 

- Although nearly half of voters identify as pro-choice on the abortion issue, the Democratic Party’s advantage has dwindled to statistical insignificance. 

- Most Americans don’t think diversity equity and inclusion (DEI) programs are making companies better, and many suspect DEI is being used to justify discrimination against white males.

- For most Americans, quality is still their top priority when shopping

- Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction
