When it came to the issue most important to voters as they make their decision at the polls, the economy, including inflation and cost of living, came out on top with 39%, followed by threats to democracy at 16%.

A majority of voters (55%) felt the state was on the right track, while just 34% felt it was heading in the wrong direction. Those feelings were reversed when it came to the U.S. as a whole, with 28% saying it was on the right track and 63% that it was heading in the wrong direction.

About 43% of voters approved of the job President Biden was doing, well below the 54% that disapproved.
