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%.
- Nearly half of voters believe Fani Willis, the district attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, should be barred from prosecuting the election interference case against former President Donald Trump and his associates.
- Securing the borders of the United States is a higher priority for voters than the war in Ukraine, and most agree with a Republican senator’s criticism of more military aid for Ukraine.
- Former President Donald Trump continues to lead President Joe Biden in the 2024 election, and third-party challenger Robert F. Kennedy Jr. maintains double-digit support.
- A plurality of voters think President Joe Biden hasn’t been aggressive enough in his dealings with Iran, and two-thirds think the current situation could lead to war.
- A majority of voters still believe cheating is likely to affect this year’s election, and don’t think government officials have done enough to protect election integrity.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for February decreased to 85.3, down nearly four points from 89.1 in January.
- Support for reparations payments to the descendants of slaves has decreased and, even among voters who favor reparations, many doubt that Congress would pass such a measure.
- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
