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 44%.

- Most voters don’t think Joe Biden is actually doing the job of president, and few are very confident that he is capable of doing the job.

Hatred of the news media may be at an all-time high, and a majority of voters say media bias is still getting worse.

- A strong majority of voters consider inflation a very serious problem, and Republicans have a 16-point margin over Democrats in terms of who voters trust to handle the issue. 

- Voters overwhelmingly expect the economy to be a top issue in November and, by a 7-point margin, trust Republicans more than Democrats to handle the issue.

Former President Donald Trump has maintained his lead over President Joe Biden in the past month, in the wake of the June 27 presidential debate. 

- Economic confidence increased to 105.4 in this month’s Rasmussen Reports Economic Index, more than 15 points higher than June.

Most Americans think it’s hotter than usual this summer, and a majority suspect it’s because of climate change. 

- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
