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 43%.

- Thursday was the first day of autumn, and nearly half of Americans are happy it’s here.

- With the midterm elections less than seven weeks away, more Republicans than Democrats say they’re very excited to vote this fall.

- Most voters believe national security will be an important issue in November, and are more likely to view the war in Ukraine as harmful to U.S. interests.

- How highly did Americans regard the late Queen Elizabeth II of England? Most think she’ll be a tough act for the newly crowned King Charles III to follow.

- The  2022 midterm elections are now 46 days away, and Republicans have a two-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

- As the use of debit and credit cards increases, fewer Americans now are paying cash for most purchases.

- Twenty-eight percent (28%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction.
