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%.
- Consumer fireworks sales are skyrocketing, and most Americans enjoy the fun of shooting their own fireworks.
- Most voters expect crime to be an important issue in the midterm elections, and President Joe Biden’s approval on the issue has declined.
- Even though more voters identify as pro-choice than pro-life, full half of them approve of the recent Supreme Court ruling that overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
- Voters trust the U.S. Supreme Court less than they did two years ago – and this was before Friday’s landmark abortion ruling.
- The president earned a monthly job approval of 40% in June, down two points from May.
- The 2022 midterm elections are now 130 days away, and Republicans have a five-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.
- Illegal immigration will be an important issue in the midterm elections, according to most voters, who say the problem is getting worse.
- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of June 19-23, 2022, increased to 90.2, up more than one point from 88.4 two weeks earlier.
- Twenty-four percent (24%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
