  • A majority (54%) of respondents disapprove of President Biden’s performance as commander in chief but would return him to office in a possible 2024 rematch against former President Trump.
  • Nearly two-thirds (63%) of Georgia-registered, likely runoff voters favor a right to abortion in every state, with 37% against.
  • Sixty percent of Georgia-registered, likely runoff voters reported politicians are definitely or mostly accountable for rising prices.
