New Polls Show Americans Are More Worried about The Economy Than Abortion

( After the SCOTUS draft leak, where Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion on Roe v. Wade was leaked, a new poll came out showing what voters were most concerned about. The economy over abortion took the cake, Breitbart reported.

President Joe Biden has recently denied economists’ concerns over economist fears that the U.S. is on the brink of a recession. After taking a leisurely stroll on the beach a day after he tumbled over on his bike, Biden snapped at a reporter who told him that most economists are predicting a high chance of a recession if inflation continues to rise amid a crashing market. He denied it saying that the reporter sounded like a Republican.

Roe v. Wade was on the precipice of getting overturned after the Supreme Court deliberated Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The state of Mississippi wanted to ban abortions after 15 weeks, forcing the Court to reevaluate the constitutionality of its precedents, that is, Roe v. Wade (1973) and Casey v. Planned Parenthood (1992).

A Suffolk University poll reportedly found that while abortion was important to many voters, the current state of the economy was at the top of the list, a concern that Democrats brush under the rug.

1000 voters were asked, “What matters more to your vote, abortion rights or the state of the economy,” with 66% saying the economy and 23% saying abortion. Only 14% said that abortion was the important issue to their vote regarding the midterms. A majority of voters, at 62%, claimed that while abortion was important to their vote, it was not their priority.

Even more telling is when over three-quarters of voters (76%) said that the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade would not change their vote.

This has been reflected so far in numerous polls as Republicans continue to lead. A recent Rasmussen poll released every Friday shows Republicans leading the Generic Congressional Ballot by 8 points, up three points from two weeks ago. Another report showed that half of voters approved of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe.
