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 42%. 

- With the Omicron variant of COVID-19 making headlines, most Americans are worried about another pandemic surge, but don’t expect it to impact their plans for the holiday season.

- Most voters don’t trust major pharmaceutical companies, and think drug makers have too much influence over America’s health care policy.

- Voters are worried about rising fuel prices and most don’t think President Joe Biden is doing enough to solve the problem.

- With the Senate now considering the legislation to fund President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda, most voters oppose the controversial bill.

- More than half of voters are concerned that COVID-19 vaccines could have harmful side effects, and don’t think the federal government should have the power to make vaccination mandatory.
- Even if they could afford it, fewer than a third of Americans would take a space trip on a commercial flight, and most don’t think they’ll ever go to space.

- The president earned a monthly job approval of 42% in November, unchanged from October.

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of November 21-23, 2021, decreased to 86.2 down nearly two points from 88.0 two weeks earlier.

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