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 45%.
- Despite reports of recruiting shortfalls by the U.S. military, fewer than one-in-four Americans are in favor of a military draft.
- Who do political parties represent, their own voters or outside interests? Republicans care about this question more than Democratic voters do.
- Americans have noticed they’re paying higher grocery prices, and most expect the cost of food to keep going up.
- Concerns about election cheating remain high, and a majority of voters favor the procedure by which Arizona “audited” disputed 2020 presidential election results in Maricopa County.
- The 2022 midterm elections are now 88 days away, and Republicans still have a three-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- Although half of voters approve of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s raid on the Florida home of former President Donald Trump, even more agree with criticism of the unprecedented event.
- Fewer than one-in-five workers think they could advance their careers by leaving their current jobs, and most expect a raise within a year.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of July 31-August 4, 2022, increased to 91.9, up more than a point from 90.3 two weeks earlier.
- Twenty-eight percent (28%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction
