What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 12, 2022
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 President Joe Biden could have done more to stop Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and many believe former President Trump would have prevented the Russian invasion.
- Most Americans don’t expect the stock market to rise in the next year, and more than half worry that the U.S. could face another Great Depression.
- More than half of voters believe cheating affected the 2020 election and an overwhelming majority say the issue of election integrity will be important in the midterm elections.
- With gas prices soaring, energy policy is likely to be a major issue in the midterm election campaign, and voters strongly favor a policy of promoting domestic petroleum production.
- Most Americans are OK with the way the news media have been covering the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and aren’t interested in discussions of the war’s impact on domestic politics.
- Economic confidence rose to 97.6 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, about one point higher than February.
- Americans are ahead of last year’s pace in filing their income taxes, but fewer expect a refund from the Internal Revenue Service.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of February 27-March 3, 2022, increased to 92.0, up more than five points from 86.4 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-two percent (32%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
