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 41%.
- There’s too much partisanship and not enough cooperation in Washington, according to a majority of voters.
- President Joe Biden’s first year in office has been a failure, according to a majority of voters who say the Democrat has left the country more divided than when he was inaugurated.
- The 2022 midterm elections are now 294 days away, and Republicans maintain a strong lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- Barely a third of Americans believe Martin Luther King Jr.’s dreams of equal opportunity in the country are a reality.
- Voters are significantly more worried about inflation and violent crime than they are about COVID-19 or climate change.
- Tattoos are increasingly common among younger Americans, and most of those who have tattoos have more than one.
- Business should focus on traditional goals like consumer service and profit, rather than the social justice and environmentalist agenda of the “Great Reset” movement, most voters believe.
- Twenty-six percent (26%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
