The 2022 midterms are rapidly approaching and the outlook is not good for Joe Biden or his party.
According to a new poll from Rasmussen, the economy is now the primary issue determining how Americans will vote in November.
People remember how robust the economy was under Trump and they see how Biden and the Democrats have squandered it.
Now they want things back the way they were.
Breitbart News reports:
Poll: Economy the Top Issue in Determining How Americans Will Vote in Midterms
A majority of Americans say the economy is the top issue in determining how they will vote in the midterm elections, a Redfield & Wilton Strategies survey released this week found.
The survey asked respondents to identify which issues are “most likely to determine” how they will vote in the November 8, 2022, midterm elections, allowing them to choose up to three.
A majority, 57 percent, selected the economy, identifying it as the top issue that will determine how they vote later this year. Just over one-third, 34 percent, said “healthcare,” and 33 percent said the Chinese coronavirus pandemic:
The economy is the most-selected option for both 2020 Joe Biden (56%) and Donald Trump (64%) voters. Other important election issues for Biden voters include healthcare (43%) and the pandemic (42%), while Trump voters are more likely to select immigration (37%) and Government spending (29%).
The poll was taken February 6, 2022, among 1,500 eligible voters.
This spells big trouble for Democrats.
Biden says he’s happy to have the midterms be a referendum on how he’s handled the economy.
Bring. It. On.

The 2022 midterms are lining up to be on par with the 2010 midterms.
Republicans picked up over 60 seats in that election.
