What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 9, 2024

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

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 41%.

- A majority of voters think the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and other government spies may be trying to pick the winner in this year’s election.

- Although a majority of Americans voters now believe Joe Biden likely profited from Hunter Biden’s foreign business deals, most Democrats still don’t think so.

- Four months after he emerged as the new Speaker of the House, Louisiana Republican Rep. Mike Johnson remains the most popular leader in Congress.

- By a 13-point margin, more voters consider former President Donald Trump a stronger supporter of Israel than President Joe Biden. 

- While a majority of voters believe Elon Musk was correct to restore former President Donald Trump’s account on X – the social media platform formerly known as Twitter – two-thirds of Democrats disagree.

Economic confidence decreased to 98.1 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, nearly 12 points lower than February. 

- Even though most Americans aren’t confident that the stock market will keep rising, they are less worried about economic catastrophe in the near future. 

- Twenty-eight percent (28%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
