POLL: Economy And Inflation Replacing COVID As Top Concern Of Americans For 2022 Midterms

As we had into 2022 midterm season, Americans are not thinking about COVID as much as they were two years ago.

New polling indicates that most Americans are more concerned about the economy and inflation.

This is terrible news for Biden and the Democrats because they have done next to nothing to deal with these issues and people know it.

The poll, conducted by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, found that just 37% of Americans named the COVID-19 pandemic as one of the top 5 priorities they want the federal government to address in 2022, a steep drop from the 53% who named it a priority at the beginning of 2021.

By contrast, nearly twice as many voters saw the economy as a top concern, with 68% of respondents naming the economy as a priority. AP reported that number was about the same as last year, but anxiety about inflation has sharply risen — 14% of voters listed inflation as a priority concern, up from less than 1% in 2021. The cost of living also rose sharply as a priority, up to 24% from 12% last year.

AP notes that the poll was conducted in December before concerns about the Omicron variant took hold, but respondents, including self-identified Democrats, said in follow-up interviews that Omicron did not impact their considerations.
