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%.

- Voters aren’t excited by the suggestion that President Joe Biden could be replaced as the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate by California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

- Nearly half of voters believe Attorney General Merrick Garland is guilty of contempt of Congress, and most Republicans think he should be jailed for not complying with congressional subpoenas.

Getting bullied in school should not be considered a normal part of childhood, according to a majority of Americans. 

Sending officials to prison for contempt of Congress is OK with a majority of voters, who consider it very important that public officials are held to the same standard of justice as other citizens. 

- Nearly a quarter of those who got vaccinated against COVID-19 regret it, and a third agree with a medical expert’s condemnation of the vaccine as deadly. 

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for June decreased to 90.8, down slightly from 91.1 in May.

- By a 30-point margin, more Americans say their personal finances have gotten worse than better, and less than a third of them expect their situation to improve in the months ahead. 

- Graduates of Ivy League universities may think they’re better than everybody else, but Americans overwhelmingly disagree.

- Thirty-three percent (33%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
