In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:
– President Trump ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 45%.
– Most voters in general support President Trump’s temporary freeze on legal immigration to give Americans a better chance in the post-coronavirus job market. Most Democrats do not.
– Americans strongly doubt the schools in their area will reopen before the end of the current school year, and even if they did, half of those with school-age kids say they probably wouldn’t let them go back.
– Democrats are pushing hard to allow more voting by mail this November because of the coronavirus, and most voters concur. But most also agree with critics that more voter fraud is likely.
– Voters are evenly divided when asked if President Trump or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would do a better job dealing with the coronavirus but think Trump is more likely to put the country ahead of his political party.

– California Governor Gavin Newsom has authorized $500 cash payments to all illegal immigrants in his state in response to the economic impact of the coronavirus, but voters aren’t keen to that idea in their home state.
– Financial anxiety over the coronavirus has eased slightly, even as more Americans report a close family member out of work.
– The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of April 12-16, 2020 stands at 102.2, little changed from 102.6 the week before.
– Most Democrats blame President Trump, not China, for the coronavirus crisis the country is now experiencing. Other voters disagree.
– Thirty-seven percent (37%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
