Surprise: Economy And Inflation Top Voter Concerns

Poll after poll after poll show that Americans are concerned with these. Seriously, every election features economic issues at the top. People always worry about their money. So, why have Democrats been running on abortion and ‘climate change’?

Economy and inflation top public’s agenda going into midterm elections: POLL

surprise surprise surpriseAbout half of Americans say either the economy or inflation is the most important issue in their vote for Congress, making pocketbook issues by far the most dominant in the run up to the midterm elections, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll.

Taken individually, 26% identify the economy as their single most important issue determining their vote while 23% cite inflation. Nearly three out of four Republicans point to the two economic concerns as a priority, compared to only 29% of Democrats per the ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted using Ipsos’ KnowledgePanel.

Democrats are much more likely than Republicans to say abortion, gun violence and climate change are the top reasons for their vote, according to the poll.

Importantly, independents closely mirror the national numbers, with 49% having the combination of inflation and the economy above all others.

It’s that last one that’s a big problem for Democrats: Independents looking at Democrats and saying “food is expensive. Energy is expensive. Clothes for my kids are expensive. Just going away for a weekend is expensive. Housing is expensive. Cars are expensive. Many foods are unavailable. And Dems are yapping about abortion, trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens while going soft on criminals, and raising my cost of living with their ‘climate change’ fanaticism? Hell no!” And Democratic candidates could easily lose the votes of the middle ground Dem voters. They might not vote GOP, they’ll just not vote.

The top two reasons for vote choice vary little by race and ethnicity. Regarding the economy and inflation, 45% of Black Americans and 47% of Hispanic Americans prioritize the pair of issues, essentially the same as the general public.

Again, they might not vote GOP, they might just not bother voting. Perhaps some Blacks are starting to realize that the DNC patronizes them, telling them that abortion and climate affect minorities more than anyone else, assuming that Blacks cannot survive without the helpful hand of Government.

We shall see in slightly over a week.

    That just goes to show how stupid and racist Republicans are. Caring about having a job and spending your own money to pay bills are White Supremacy issues.

    Because the President and his party always get the credit for the economy when it’s good, and blame when it’s bad, and most people see the economy as bad.

    Oh, the left, including the leftists who comment here, keep trying to tell us that inflation isn’t President Biden’s fault, and that’s the message that the Democrats nationwide are trying to push when they do mention the economy, but they really don’t mention the economy all that much, because it’s a losing message for them. It’s kind of difficult to tell people that the economy is great, when they can see themselves, feel themselves, getting poorer every day.

    So, the left are fixated on running against Donald Trump, who has been out of office for 21 months and isn’t on the ballot, and running on January 6th, a three-hour fraternity party that got a bit out of hand, Elon Musk buying Twitter, as though most Americans will see increased freedom of speech is a bad thing, and now Paul Pelosi, a story which seems to be a little bit, well, odd the way the credentialed media have presented it.

    And, of course, abortion, abortion, abortion! That the left want to hold power on the backs of dead babies actually seems pretty typical.;

    AARP conducted a poll among all its SENIOR CITIZENS and after the economy………


    Run to the bank Democrats the senior citizen women in their 80s are bemoaning abortion.

    Now while I would assess the fact that most leftist snowflake gals in their teens, 20s, and 30s are outraged that states can now make their own laws. Laws based upon DEMOCRACY as in what the state’s prevailing and usually dominant opinion is of the matter……

    Just like overwhelmingly the PEOPLE OF THE USA are demanding that BIDEN DESTROY THE ECONOMY and make us all drive electric cars.

    But wait….no actually the ATTORNEY GENERALS ASSOCIATION who holds yearly conventions usually sponsored by all the major corporations that are being sued by the states and the federal government find it more important to go after mother’s angry at what their kids are being taught in school.

    Another current concern of voters is crime, and the huge surge in murders. Democrats seem to think that reducing incarceration will help, while sensible people realize that a bad guy behind bars is a bad guy not out on the streets committing more crimes.
