What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending May 25, 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%.

- On the question of which presidential candidate would do more to ensure America’s safety, voters have a clear preference for former President Donald Trump.

- Less than six months before Election Day, Republicans have a five-point lead in their battle to maintain their narrow House majority.

- As the so-called “hush money” trial of former President Donald Trump nears its conclusion, most voters expect the defendant to be found guilty. 

- Given a choice between granting amnesty to illegal immigrants and deporting all of them, Americans voters favor deportation by a double-digit margin. 

- Four years after the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world, many Americans believe they know someone who died from the vaccine that promised to stop the virus. 

- As America prepares for the holiday honoring those who died while serving in the U.S. military, veterans have a higher opinion of Memorial Day

- Despite high interest rates, homeowners are now more confident in the resale value of their homes than they’ve been in nearly five years. 

- Thirty-two percent (32%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction
