A jaw-dropping new poll just sent Democrats running for their lives

Democrats continue to see bad news pour in about the 2022 midterms.

Now liberals are staring at the final nail in their coffin.

And a jaw-dropping new poll just sent Democrats running for their lives.

The economy is always the number one issue for voters in every election.

With gas prices spiking to record highs and inflation surging to levels not seen in 40 years, the number of Americans saying the economy is their number one issue keeps increasing.

Morning Consult found that phenomena in their latest poll as the share of voters saying the economy was their number one issue increased to 40 percent.

“Republicans in Congress have held an advantage over Democrats on economic trust since June 2021, as voters began to feel heightened inflation at the gas pump and grocery stores. That edge has only grown over the past nine months as prices have increased and the share of voters who view the economy as their top issue has reached 40%,” Morning Consult wrote of their latest poll.

The poll also found that Republicans held leads of 14, 11, and 6 points on the issues of inflation, the economy, and jobs.

Morning Consult reported:

By a margin of 14 percentage points, Republicans in Congress (46%) are more trusted than Democrats (32%) on inflation, marking the largest gap on 14 issues tested. 

Compared with inflation, Democrats perform slightly better on the economy (36% trust) and jobs (39% trust). But Republicans still have respective 11- and 6-point advantages on those top-of-mind economic issues.

Among independent voters, Republicans are more trusted than Democrats on inflation (40% to 17%), the economy (43% to 22%) and jobs (41% to 27%).

An NBC poll found that Republicans held a 17-point lead over Democrats on the question of which party’s voters were more enthusiastic to turnout in the midterm election.

In 2010, when the GOP’s Tea Party wave led to a historic rout where Republicans gained 63 seats in the House of Representatives – Republicans held a 10-point lead over Democrats on the enthusiasm questions.

The GOP’s enthusiasm edge combined with the Morning Consult poll showing Republicans holding commanding leads over Democrats on the number one issue for voters are why even liberal journalists like NBC’s Chuck Todd are saying the Democrats are entering “shellacking” territory in November.
