Climate change is not a priority for American voters, in fact it’s not even close.
The top three issues, according to new poling, are the economy, inflation and crime, and all of that is bad news for Democrats.
To make matters worse, the Democrats have been using the issues people care about in order to advance their green agenda.
CBS News reports:
Fewer Americans see climate change as a priority than they did a year ago – CBS News poll
With issues like the economy and inflation, crime, and the war in Ukraine weighing most on Americans’ minds, the percentage who think climate change needs to be addressed right now has dipped some since one year ago.
This dip in urgency, while not steep, is widespread. Fewer people across age, race, and education groups, as well as partisan stripes, think climate change needs to be addressed right away than thought so a year ago. Still, most Americans do think it’s an issue that needs to be addressed now or least in the next few years.
A year ago, when more Americans rated the national economy as “good” than they do now, more people saw climate change as urgent. As views of the economy have grown more negative, the percentage saying climate change needs to be dealt with immediately has ebbed.
Pocketbook issues like the economy and inflation rank as top priorities for Americans. Of the seven issues asked about in our polling, climate change (along with COVID-19 — also at 39%) ranks at the bottom as “high priority” issues.

The economy and crime are much more important issues.
People don’t think about climate change when they’re worried about putting food on the table.
