Bad News For Brandon: Poll Shows Economy Is Most Important Issue

Perhaps a lot of these people should have thought of that in 2020, considering how bad it is right now, and getting worse

Poll: Economy Top Issue for Voters Heading into the Midterm Elections

The economy remains the top issue for voters heading into the midterm elections, a Redfield & Wilton Strategies survey released this week found.

They survey, taken March 8 among 1,500 eligible U.S. voters, asked respondents to identify which issues are most likely to determine how they will vote in the November 8, 2022, midterm elections. The survey, allowing respondents to choose three answers, found the economy topping the list, as 61 percent chose that issue. Healthcare came in a distant second with 34 percent, followed by the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, which saw 26 percent. Immigration followed closely behind with 24 percent identifying it as a top issue. 

Notably, the top issue for both Biden voters and Trump voters is the economy. Fifty-eight percent of Biden voters, specifically, identified the economy as their top issue, followed by healthcare (42 percent) and the coronavirus pandemic (33 percent).  

Meanwhile, 72 percent of Trump voters identified the economy as the top issue, followed by immigration (40 percent), and healthcare (27 percent). 

Notably, the survey showed a plurality disapproving of Biden’s handling of the economy, 43 percent disapproving to 35 percent who approve. Of those who disapprove, 30 percent do so “strongly.”

In fairness, this is eligible voters, which isn’t even “likely voters”. The thing to consider at this point, with the midterms 8 months away, is “what happens if the economy gets a bit better?” Will people, particularly the Independents, remember how bad things were? Will the economy get worse? Will it stay in the same doldrums? The economy would have to skyrocket to make people forget, would be my thought.

Of course, since Democrats have worked hard to damage the energy industry, the cost of energy will stay elevated, which will drive the cost of food and goods.

Americans will likely see “uncomfortably high” inflation this year, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned there could be another year of high inflation amid the uncertainty caused by the invasion of Ukraine. Prices have soared at their fastest pace in 40 years over the last 12 months.

“We’re likely to see another year in which 12-month inflation numbers remain very uncomfortably high,” Yellen said in an interview with CNBC. Yellen, who previously said she expected rising prices to ease in the second half of the year, said Thursday she does not want to make a prediction about the second half of this year.

The latest data from the Labor Department show consumer prices climbed 7.9% in February from a year ago, the largest annual increase since January 1982. Prices were up 0.8% last month, an acceleration from January as energy prices spiked with the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

They can blame this on Ukraine all they want, but, people aren’t dumb…well, I mean, hardcore Democrats are…, they will remember that the economy was not great prior to Ukraine, and polling has also shown that Biden did a pisspoor job on Ukraine. And, if Yellen is saying this, it’s probably going to be worse than she’s saying.
