The Economy Continues to Be the Top Issue for Americans, New Poll Shows

Leading up to the midterm elections, several polls showed that the economy and inflation were top issues for voters. Other important issues to voters included border security, crime, and for some, abortion, given that the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade this year. Now, a new poll shows that the economy continues to top the list of top issues for registered voters and shows how many Americans have been personally affected by President Biden’s economic policies. 

A Fox News poll released this week found that 42 percent of Americans believe that the economy is the top issue facing the country today. Other top issues included immigration/border security (13 percent), abortion (8 percent) and climate change (8 percent).

Now, only 19 percent of Americans say that the economy is excellent or good. Eighty-one percent describe it as “fair” or “poor.” Last month, 78 percent of Americans said this.

The majority of respondents, 74 percent, report inflation causing them financial problems over the last six month. One year ago, 67 percent of respondents felt this way. And, 48 percent of respondents said they think it will only get worse. Forty-four percent said Biden’s policies have made inflation worse. 

Forty-six percent of respondents said they have been personally hurt by some of Biden’s economic policies (via Fox News):

Inflation is President Biden's worst issue: 30% approve of the job he is doing (67% disapprove). His ratings on China (33% approve), immigration (35%), the economy (36%) and guns (36%) are not much better.

"Even though his job approval rating is below 50 percent, there is some Teflon in Biden," Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducted the poll with Democrat Chris Anderson, said. "If you look at how voters say he has done on the big issues, he should be even less popular than he actually is. It’s possible that his ‘been there, done that' demeanor is what people want even as they express dissatisfaction with his performance."

The poll was conducted Dec. 9 through Dec. 12 under Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) and surveyed 1,005 registered voters nationwide.
