What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending May 7, 2022
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 45%.
- A majority of voters think President Joe Biden shouldn’t seek reelection in 2024, and he would lose a rematch with former President Donald Trump by double-digit margins.
- The leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision has voters divided almost evenly over the landmark abortion ruling.
- More than a year after he left office, former President Donald Trump’s endorsement of candidates still matters – more even than the current occupant of the White House.
- The president earned a monthly job approval of 42% in April, up one point from March.
- Pessimism about the current employment situation has faded since last year, even as concerns for the future of the job market remain high.
- Most voters rate President Joe Biden poor for his handling of the economy, and say inflation will be a very important issue this fall in the midterm elections.
- Thirty-one states have made English their official language, and more than three-quarters of Americans now believe that should be a nationwide policy.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of April 24-28, 2022, increased to 89.3, up more than a point from 87.9 two weeks earlier.
- Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
