Not the we need polls to tell us the obvious, but the vast majority of Americans (over 90%) now rate inflation and the economic decline as their top worry going into the November mid-term elections. This comes from the latest the latest POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, which traditionally tends to spin topics to the hard left, making the results all the more staggering.
The poll also indicates that 10% more voters prefer Republicans to handle inflationary concerns instead of Democrats. This may explain why leftists have started to back away from cultural topics in their campaign platforms, or are seeking to artificially tie culture war issues to economic issues. The outcome of multiple polls leaning towards widespread economic fears among the public suggest an impending red sweep in November, and Democrats are clearly worried.
When it comes to voting this November, more than 80 percent of respondents said that the economy would play a major role in deciding who to vote for. Only 4 percent said it would play no role at all. Three out of every four Democrats and almost 90 percent of Republicans said it would be a major factor in their decision making.
Economic disaster, open borders, rising crime rates and rising poverty are now linked inexorably to the Biden Administration, and thus linked to Democrats as a whole. In terms of inflation, Joe Biden has sought to mitigate the visibility of the crisis in the limited ways available to him, including his attempt to reduce gas prices by putting pressure on Saudi Arabia to increase oil output and his steady release of supply from the strategic reserves. These measures have proven to be futile, with gas prices at the pump still around double the amount they were when Biden entered the White House.
