What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls
In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 48%.
- The Biden administration is reportedly working to develop a COVID-19 “vaccine passport,” but fewer than half of voters think it's a good idea to require proof of vaccination against the coronavirus.
- Cost is by far the number one problem with America’s health care system, according to voters, but most don’t think more government regulation is the solution.
- Democrats are threatening to change the rules of the U.S. Senate to eliminate the filibuster, and voters are divided over whether this is a good idea.
- President Joe Biden promised new gun-control measures in the wake of two recent mass shootings, but voters overwhelming believe their right to own guns is protected by the Constitution.
- The president earned a monthly job approval of 49% in March, down one point from 50% in his first full month in office. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapproved of his job performance last month, up from 47% in February.
- Perhaps because of the COVID-19 pandemic, most Americans don’t expect to celebrate this Easter Sunday in church.
- As Easter weekend approaches, Americans overwhelmingly believe Jesus was the son of God and was raised from the dead.
- Gasoline prices have risen sharply in recent months, and most Americans expect the price to keep going up.
