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 40%.

Voters trust Republicans more to handle the economy and, by a wide margin, view “Bidenonmics” as a losing issue for President Joe Biden in this year’s election.

A majority of American voters identify as pro-choice, but don’t think abortion should be legal past the third month of pregnancy.

- More than one-in-four voters say they’d be willing to engage in illegal voting activity if it would help their preferred candidate win the 2024 presidential election.

- Most voters don’t think the Republican Party has been effective at winning elections, and agree with the new RNC chairman’s emphasis on having election observers in polling places.

Republicans have a major edge over Democrats in terms of voter excitement, and voters overwhelmingly see President Joe Biden as too old to hold the office.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for April decreased to 86.6, down one point from 87.6 in March.

- Americans are still seeing higher prices at the grocery store, and most have changed their eating habits to deal with the effect of inflation. 

- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
