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 43%.

- Despite concerns about climate change, increased domestic oil and gas production is favored by a majority of voters in key “battleground” states in this year’s presidential election.

- A majority of voters say the recent assassination attempt against former President Donald Trump has made them less confident in the Secret Service, and even more worry that Trump will be targeted again.

- While President Joe Biden claims it is only “elites” in the Democratic Party who want him to end his reelection bid, most voters agree with Hollywood liberal George Clooney that Democrats are doomed with Biden atop their ticket. 

- Many voters believe paper ballots are more trustworthy than electronic voting machines, and a majority say they’d volunteer to count ballots. 

- A majority of voters like former President Donald Trump’s choice of Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance as his vice presidential running mate

- Less than four months before Election Day, former President Donald Trump continues to lead President Joe Biden.

- In five of the six states considered “battlegrounds” in this year’s presidential election, former President Donald Trump now leads President Joe Biden.

- Nearly half of American voters would support laws to protect U.S. business from a European Union (EU) policy that imposes strict environmental, climate, and social justice rules on companies.

- Americans continue to say they’re feeling the pain of high grocery prices

- Thirty-two percent (32%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction
