What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending October 22, 2022

In surveys last week, this is what America told Rasmussen Reports:

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 44%.

- While most voters will wait until Election Day to cast their ballot, half of Democrats say they’ll vote early this year.

- With the midterm elections less than three weeks away, most voters are still worried about high gasoline prices and give President Joe Biden low marks for his energy policy.

- A majority of California voters support an abortion rights referendum scheduled for next month, even though most are against late-term abortion.

- A majority of voters don’t believe President Joe Biden should seek reelection in 2024, and are not confident in his ability to do the job now.

- The 2022 midterm elections are now only 18 days away, and Republicans have a four-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

- A majority of Nevada voters are against allowing biological males to compete in women’s sports, one of the potential consequences of a referendum next month that would make “gender identity or expression” protected civil rights under the state constitution.

- In a potential signal of declining economic optimism, homeowners are becoming less confident in the resale value of their homes.

- Most Americans say religion is important to their own lives, and many think the country would be better off if more people attended religious services regularly.

- Twenty-seven percent (27%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
