What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending October 29, 2022

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

- President Biden ended the polling week with a daily job approval of 45%.

- The 2022 midterm elections are now just 11 days away, and Republicans have a seven-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

- In what may be a key indicator of this year’s midterm election results, Republicans have a clear edge when it comes to what voters think is best for the next session of Congress.

- Less than two weeks before Election Day, Republicans lead in the closely watched midterm races for governor and U.S. Senator in Georgia.

- President Joe Biden has urged businesses to close the so-called “pay gap” between male and female employees, but most Americans don’t think discrimination is to blame for women’s lower incomes. 

- Republican candidates for governor and U.S. Senate in Nevada appear poised to defeat Democratic incumbents in next month’s midterm election.

- Half of voters still have a favorable opinion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but an overwhelming majority want the agency to avoid partisan political bias. 

- Barely two weeks before Election Day, Democrats lead in the closely watched midterm races for governor and U.S. Senator in Pennsylvania. 

- The Rasmussen Reports Immigration Index for the week of October 16-20, 2022, decreased to 92.1, down more than two points from 94.3 two weeks earlier. 

- Twenty-nine (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
