New Polling Shows Inflation Trumps Abortion Among Voters

inflation

WASHINGTON, DC, May 16 – The likelihood the Supreme Court will soon overturn the controversial Roe vs. Wade abortion rights decision the Court handed down 50 years ago has triggered a nationwide brou-ha-ha. But, as an issue of importance to voters, it takes a back seat to President Biden’s inflationary spiral, based on a new Rasmussen survey. The poll shows that a whopping 87% of respondents are more concerned about inflation, violent crime [83%], and illegal immigration [69%] than about abortion rights [63%].

The Rasmussen report notes that “A majority of voters are concerned about rising energy costs and favor increased drilling for oil and gas, although most Democratic voters consider reducing climate change a higher priority [and that] most voters rate President Joe Biden poor for his handling of the economy and say inflation will be a very important issue this fall in the midterm elections.”

As Congressman Kevin Brady [R-TX], former Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, explains it: “Because both the White House and the Fed were in denial and dismissed [inflation] for all of last year, now the likelihood of a recession that’s needed to break that inflation cycle is much higher. That delay has hurt the country in a big way. It’s going to be tough. Every wage-price spiral like we’re in today ends in a recession. It’s very painful. Which is why all of last year we were so frustrated and [tried to tell him] look, you’ve got to deal with these issues, Mr. President. I think it’s very likely it ends up in a recession.”

The current inflation rate is about 8.26%, and prices continue to increase. The average price of gasoline nationwide, for example, is approaching $4.50 per gallon, although in some states, it is as high as $6.00+ and climbing. Meanwhile, groceries and other household needs are increasing at double-digit rates.

Remember when inflation showed its ugly head last year, President Biden told us it was temporary. It was in July 2021 that he shrugged it off and said, “We also know that as our economy has come roaring back, we’ve seen some price increases. Some folks have raised worries that this could be a sign of persistent inflation. But that’s not our view. Our experts believe and the data shows that most of the price increases we’ve seen are — were expected and expected to be temporary.” 

We are in the fifth month in a row that wholesale prices have increased by 10% or more, and Congressman Brady notes that “When Main Street businesses get hit with double-digit increases in prices, consumers are the ones who ultimately pay.” And he warns us to be prepared to pay even higher prices going forward.

The president seems to be at a loss. He appeared to “lose it,” as they say, over the weekend when he posted a non-sequitur of a tweet on Twitter. Mr. Biden’s message reads: “You want to bring down inflation? Let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share.” The remark makes it appear that while the president may know how to spell “inflation,” he doesn’t know what it means. It must have looked that way to Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, who quickly responded with a reply, to wit, “The newly created Disinformation Board should review this tweet, or maybe they need to form a new Non Sequitur Board instead. Raising corp[orate] taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical to discuss.  Mushing them together is just misdirection.”

To paraphrase Bette Davis, fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Face it, the democrats ONLY care about their own GREED and Power,all people are just an inconvenience!

we all know the democrats are trying desperately to make the supreme court ruling a big deal. However most of america knows it is a big nothing burger.

We also know that Biden, and the democrats, caused the inflation, stagflation, supply chain problem, disaster in Afghanistan, the Ukraine war, the covid virus, the horrible shot, mask and social distancing mandates. the democrat illegal shutdown of the economy, the racial hate currently rising, and the democrats paid the rioters in 2019 and 2020.

The question is what will the democrats do next to try to force you to vote for them before they finish their election fraud processing.

Each individual knows where they stand on the abortion issue, talk about it all you want I know where I stand and what I believe. My attitude changes each time I buy gas and groceries. My hate of this administration and all their lame excuses grows stronger with each passing day.

Are those opposed to Biden, finding a way to confer with him and tell him, he is wrong, in ‘how may ways?’ Be cause of all the fraud in the president’s election, I wish it could be turned to the re-election of President Trump. So many wish they had voted for President Trump.

Abortion has only 50/50 support with women. Women who have “natural affection” do NOT kill their babies for convenience sake. REAL men do not pay to kill their babies, either.
EVERYBODY is affected by inflation although DIMM millionaires can afford while we “deplorables” can’t.

Hmm, I guess my previous comment did not go thru since it had too much profanity there. I will try to communicate my points in a nicer way here below…

The way I see it, most women are very much invested with this topic. This is the number one issue for most of them. If the Republicans ban abortion, they will turn most women against Republicans – forever and for good. And they are mobilizing and calling it Women Against Republicans. Get it? Nice acronym isn’t it? Do you understand the long term political ramifications of this? Republicans will become a permanent minority – forever. Women will not even wanna hear from a Republican candidate – ever. This single issue is the single biggest mistake the Republicans will ever make. And if you support this Republican initiative, you are a fool. You will be complaining about what Democrats are doing for the rest of your life. Is it worth to save a few million of fetus’ life for? A moral person may say, yes, but a practical one like myself will say no. But then, hey, if we become a one party system I guess I will position myself accordingly. I am hoping that America will still be a more or less good place to live in my lifetime. As I don’t have any kids nor do I plan to have them, I do not care much what happens to this world after I am gone.

Well of course you are not thinking very well because you are a democrat and can not think well. First off you are wrong about the most women part. Mothers and religious women do not agree with you. women over 65 do not agree with you. that leaves you with the 18 to 64 year old women who are liberal.

Then of that crowd you have the extremists and moderates. the moderates do not care about abortion after 16 weeks. the extremists want abortions until the baby is self aware. Self aware being variable up to a month after birth.

Every single poll done shows support for abortion drops like a rock in water as soon as you ask if they support abortion after 20 weeks with a full 72% saying no.

So you are completely wrong about your level of support for abortion and you shoudl apologize for lying.

Next you are wrong about the figure pointing at republicans. The 72% alone tells you it is not just republicans who disagree with your position on abortion. Further the supreme court is neither republican or democrat. this is a supreme court decision on law not a political decision.

Once again you should apologize for lying.

If you have to lie for your beliefs your beliefs are wrong. Be honest. If you can not convince people with honest discussion then change your thinking.

This is bad, bad, bad for the Republicans and will make more and more women to turn toward the Democrats. Women wanna have the right to do whatever they want with their bodies, the babies be damned. I am a guy, but I also see this issue fundamentally from the spectrum of freedom. Women should be free to abort the babies if they do not want them. Hell, this is good for men too since they will be off the hook when it comes to paying for child support. Certainly the issue is a bit more complex and I am oversimplifying it in my post here and wanna analyze the practical implications… I can tell you from my observations that the vast majority of women – maybe as many as 75% percent, wanna have this right to abort. And I have to agree with them on this matter.

If the Republicans are smart, they should allow women to have the freedom. Certainly, we can say that millions of babies are murdered in a womb (a very loose definition of murder but whatever)… But with more and more women aligning with the left on this very important issue could permanently shift the balance of power toward the Democrats by a huge number. Imagine if the Democrats permanently control all three branches of the Government and pass all the laws they want – it will be possible if 75% of the women vote (D). Then what? We are F-d! The millions of aborted babies… Well, we will never hear from them. We will never feel the effects of them having never been born… But we will always feel the effects of women permanently voting (D). Most of them are emotional, single issue voters. And bodily autonomy is indeed the biggest issue for them. Most of them vote Democrat but many of them are still independent and can be persuaded to shift toward the (R)s at some time. But if you ban abortions, the vast majority of women will never, ever, will wanna hear from a Republican again. So, think about it.

I think your “facts” are off. More and more women (and youth) are turning pro-life, not pro-abortion. Turn off MSLSD and get some real facts!

You would be surprised to know how many woman know that abortion is murder. As the saying goes, give them an inch and they will take a mile, as now, in some states, the newborn child, full term, is left to die when not stimulated to breath. It lays there like a fish out of water.
