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. 

- Four months into the Russian invasion of Ukraine, voters are divided over the U.S. response to the war, and few approve of President Joe Biden’s handling of the situation.

- Most Americans believe the danger of COVID-19 is now mostly over, and oppose making vaccination against the virus mandatory for school children.

- Most voters clearly aren’t buying President Joe Biden’s explanations about high gas prices and say he’s done a poor job of handling the economy overall.

- Most Americans support efforts to increase diversity in the workforce, but believe this is likely to lead to racial and gender quotas, and most don’t think diversity efforts are improving race relations.

- The 2022 midterm elections are now 137 days away, and Republicans have an eight-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

- Even though a majority of Americans can imagine a future where most jobs are done by robots, few believe their own job could be one of those.

- Despite believing that a good night’s sleep is important, most Americans say they get less than eight hours sleep on most weeknights.

- Twenty-four percent (24%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
