After a second consecutive midterm election that resulted in divided partisan control of Congress, the American public is broadly skeptical that either the president or Republican House leaders will get their programs passed into law. Most U.S. adults say President Joe Biden and Republican leaders in Congress will be unsuccessful getting their agendas enacted in the next two years. Also, Republicans are less confident than Democrats in midterm vote counts – but more confident than they were after the 2020 election. And 44% of Americans say they cast their ballots in person on Election Day, an increase of 17 percentage points compared with 2020.
