Most voters believe violent crime is getting worse and expect the issue to be important in next month’s midterm elections.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that 62% of likely U.S. voters believe the problem of violent crime in America is getting worse.
Only 11% think the crime problem is getting better, while 24% think the problem is staying about the same.
These findings are almost unchanged since April.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of voters believe the issue of violent crime will be important in this year’s congressional elections, including 52% who say the crime issue will be "very important."
Only 15% don’t think the issue will be important in the midterms.
In June, 86% expected the crime issue would be important in November.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of voters rate President Joe Biden "good" or "excellent" for his handling of crime and law enforcement issues, up from 30% in June.
Forty-eight percent (48%) now give Biden a poor rating on the crime issue, down from 51% in June.
