What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending March 19, 2022
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 38%.
- President Joe Biden’s declaration that the United States will welcome refugees from Ukraine “with open arms” is overwhelmingly popular with voters.
- The 2022 midterm elections are now 235 days away, and Republicans have an 11-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- Americans generally have a high opinion of their local police, and barely one-in-five think cops are mostly at fault when a suspect gets shot.
- Soaring fuel prices have caused a majority of Americans to drive less and reduce spending in other areas of their household budgets.
- Critics have slammed a new Florida state law restricting gender and sexual orientation instruction for young public school students, but a majority of voters nationwide support the law.
- Even though most Americans don’t think St. Patrick’s Day is a very important holiday, nearly a third will have a drink to honor the occasion.
- Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
