American voters overwhelmingly consider the economy to be a top issue of concern, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.
Ninety-two percent of 958 likely voters said the economy is an "extremely or very important issue," according to the poll conducted September 25 through September 29.
Thirty-eight percent of likely voters believe the economy is doing "good," while only 34 percent said they believe the economy will make progress this year. Thirty-six percent of likely voters said Republicans are more equipped to deal with the economy, compared with 31 percent who said Democrats are.
Other top issues for likely voters include health care, terrorism and the danger of ISIL. Approximately 8 in 10 likely voters said those issues were important.
Congress' approval rating, meanwhile, is at just 7 percent, the poll of likely voters showed. Forty-two percent of likely voters are satisfied with President Barack Obama's job performance.
Meanwhile, the majority of likely voters believe the Senate will remain under Democratic control after the mid-terms, and most also think Republicans will continue to have a majority in the House.
The poll of likely voters, who were interviewed online, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
