What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending November 20, 2021
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 41%.
- Have the FBI and the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) become political weapons against President Joe Biden’s opponents? After targeting Trump adviser Steve Bannon and conservative journalist James O’Keefe, most voters think so.
- Most gun owners don’t want the U.S. government compiling information on Americans who own firearms, and believe this could lead to all weapons being confiscated.
- With the midterms elections now less than a year away, Republicans have a double-digit lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- Voters increasingly distrust reporting about politics, and most think the media are less aggressive in questioning President Joe Biden than they were with former President Donald Trump.
- Public perception of the job market has shifted toward pessimism, and more Americans now expect the employment picture to get worse than better.
- Nearly four out of five Americans will gather together for Thanksgiving and most haven’t let the COVID-19 pandemic change their plans for this year’s holiday.
- Barely one-fifth of Arizona voters support efforts by Democrats to include an amnesty provision for illegal immigrants in the “Build Back Better” legislation currently pending in Congress, and most would vote against a member of Congress who supports the proposed amnesty.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of October 24-28, 2021, decreased to 88.0 down from 88.3 two weeks earlier.
- Thirty-three percent (33%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
