What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 4, 2023
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 48%.
- Voters overwhelmingly support releasing all videos of the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, and a majority think it’s likely that government agents helped provoke the riot.
- A majority of voters don’t think President Joe Biden has kept his campaign promise to unite Americans, and one-third endorse a GOP congresswoman’s recent call for a “national divorce” between red states and blue states.
- As Black History Month comes to an end, a plurality of Americans believe race relations in the country are getting worse.
- Most voters give the federal government low ratings for its response to this month’s train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio.
- Although more voters now think President Joe Biden is healthy enough to do the job, a majority agree that his age disqualifies the 80-year-old for a second term in the White House.
- The news media are going easy on President Joe Biden, according to a majority of voters, who also think the problem of media bias is getting worse.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of February 19-23, 2023, increased to 90.6, up more than three points from 87.4 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty percent (35%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
