What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending September 23, 2023
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 45%.
- More than two-thirds of American voters are worried that their country is turning into a police state – a tyrannical government that engages in mass surveillance, censorship, ideological indoctrination, and targeting of political opponents.
- A quarter of Democratic voters favor Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in their party’s primary, and many would vote for Kennedy if he ran as a third-party candidate in 2024.
- Concerns about election integrity remain high, with most voters worried that cheating could be a factor in next year’s election.
- If the 2024 election proves to be a rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, many voters are open to voting for a third-party challenger.
- The impact of illegal immigration on local schools, health care and employment is far more negative than positive, according to American voters.
- Tomorrow marks the official beginning of fall, and nearly half of Americans welcome the season.
- President Joe Biden plans a historic pay raise for federal workers, but Americans generally believe government employees are already paid more and work less than those in the private sector.
- Thirty-four percent (34%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
