What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending November 11, 2023

In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 43%.

- President Joe Biden wants to link military aid for Ukraine and Israel together as a single piece of legislation, but half of voters want assistance to Israel to be a separate issue.

- Most American voters view Benjamin Netanyahu favorably and more than two-thirds agree with the Israeli prime minister’s rejection of calls for a ceasefire in Gaza.

New House Speaker Mike Johnson begins his term as the most popular of the four top congressional leaders.

- Despite skipping debates and facing criminal charges in multiple jurisdictions, former President Donald Trump has increased his support among Republican primary voters.

- Less than half of voters think the news media are doing a good job covering the Gaza war, but Democrats have a more favorable view. 

Economic confidence increased to 93.7 in this month's Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, three points higher than October. 

- The number of Americans concerned about surveillance has increased, including those worried that their own government is spying on U.S. citizens. 

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of October 29-November 2, 2023, decreased to 84.7, down more than four points from 88.9 two weeks earlier.

- Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
