Just 34% Say U.S. Headed in 'Right Direction' Under Biden; 56% in Georgia Believe Trump's being "Unfairly" Prosecuted: Rasmussen


52% said a month ago they believe the economy has "gotten worse" since Biden became president

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — According to the latest Rasmussen Reports National Telephone & Online Survey released Monday, just 34% of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction under President Joe Biden.

This finding comes after a majority of voters at the of August said they believed that economic conditions "have worsened" under Joe Biden (Aug. 29th-31st,) with:

  • 52% of "Likely U.S. Voters" saying they believe the U.S. economy has "gotten worse" since Biden became president
  • 31% say the economy has "gotten better," and
  • 14% believe the economy is "about the same."

And in another surprising survey of 1,061 Likely Georgia Voters conducted September 8th-11th by Rasmussen, the prosecution of former President Donald Trump by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is "unfair," say a majority of Georgia voters – most of whom have concerns about the integrity of elections in their state. (see below.)

  • 56% of Likely Georgia Voters believe it is likely the prosecution of former President Donald Trump is being "unfairly" prosecuted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, including:
    • 39% who say it’s "Very Likely"
    • 37% who don’t think it’s "likely"
    • with 28% saying an unfair prosecution is "Very Unlikely."

  • 35% don’t think it’s likely the 2020 Georgia election was affected by cheating,
  • 22% who say it’s Not At All Likely,
  • with another 13% saying they are not sure.

Majority of Voters are Worried about 2024 Election Cheating

In a final Rasmussen Survey released Tuesday, September 19th, a majority of "Likely U.S. Voters" say they are worried about Election Cheating in 2024:

  • 56% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it’s "likely" that cheating will affect the outcome of the next Presidential Election
    • including 33% who think it’s "Very Likely"
  • 37% say it is "unlikely" the election will be affected by cheating
    • including 20% who consider it "Not At All Likely."

Concerns about election integrity, obviously, remain high across the United States, with most voters worried that "cheating" could be a factor in next year’s election.

If it's in the news, it's in Rasmussen's Polls.
