What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 18, 2023
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 46%.
- Former President Donald Trump remains more popular among Republican voters than GOP congressional leaders, and a majority of all voters think Trump’s 2020 campaign was sabotaged by D.C. politicians.
- Voters overwhelmingly believe America is threatened by Mexican drug cartels, and support proposals to designate the cartels as terrorist organizations.
- A majority of voters agree with a Republican presidential candidate’s criticism of climate change as a “religion” that isn’t really about the climate at all.
- In the wake of the Ohio train derailment disaster, a majority of voters believe Transportation Secretary Peter Buttigieg should resign.
- The razor-thin outcome of last year’s Arizona gubernatorial election has made most voters in the state suspicious of the result.
- This year’s celebration of St. Patrick’s Day may be extra festive, as more Americans say they’ll have a drink for the holiday.
- Americans are running slightly behind last year’s pace when it comes to filing with the Internal Revenue Service, and fewer expect a refund this year.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of March 5-9, 2023, decreased to 90.2, down slightly from 90.6 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-nine percent (39%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
