What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending September 10, 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%.

- As children return to classrooms this fall, a majority of Democrats still support school policies to require masks and vaccines against COVID-19.

- By a six-point margin, voters view the upcoming midterm elections as being more about President Joe Biden than individual candidates and issues, and half say a Republican win means Biden should change course. 

- The abandoned laptop that revealed Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealing remains an important story, according to voters, many of whom think it could have changed the 2020 election.

- Although it’s not viewed as one of America’s most important holidays, Labor Day is seen more as a recognition of workers than merely the unofficial end of summer. 

- The 2022 midterm elections are now 60 days away, and Republicans have a four-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

- Economic confidence increased to 89.4 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, slightly higher than August.

- Republicans voters overwhelmingly believe President Joe Biden should be impeached, and half of independents agree.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of August 28-September 1, 2022, decreased to 91.8, slightly down from 92.7 two weeks earlier.

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