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%.
- Four out of five Americans say they have a lot to be thankful for this holiday.
- Less than a third of voters think it would be a good idea for President Joe Biden to run for reelection, and he would lose a rematch to former President Donald Trump by a double-digit margin.
- Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of homicide charges last week in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and nearly half of voters believe media coverage of the trial was unfair to the teenager.
- West Virginia voters overwhelmingly oppose an amnesty provision for illegal immigrants in the “Build Back Better” legislation, bolstering Democratic Sen. Joe Machin’s opposition to the measure.
- The number of Americans who expect to visit stores to take advantage of Black Friday prices is up this year, and most haven’t let concerns about COVID-19 affect their shopping plans.
- Nearly four out of five Americans will gather together for Thanksgiving and most haven’t let the COVID-19 pandemic change their plans for this year’s holiday
- If you don’t watch award shows, don’t care what’s happening on “The Bachelorette,” and don’t want to know who is divorcing whom in Hollywood, you’re not alone – most Americans are sick of celebrity news.
- Thirty percent (30%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
