(FreedomBeacon.com)- According to a poll conducted for the Republican State Leadership Committee after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the top issues for voters heading into the November election are related to the economy and crime. Abortion only made it to Number 4.
Overall, 37 percent of voters believe inflation and rising consumer prices is the most important issue. Another 16 percent said the economy in general, and 9 percent said crime and violence were the most important issues to them. Abortion, on the other hand, was only named the most important issue by 8 percent of respondents, followed by Climate Change (7 percent), Guns (7 percent), Immigration (6 percent), voting rights (5 percent), jobs/unemployment (3 percent), and education (3 percent).
Among Independents, 60 percent named inflation, jobs, and the economy as the top concerns while only 21 percent named abortion.
Only 30 percent of respondents said a candidate’s position on abortion is the “absolute most important issue” for them while 65 percent said there were other issues far more important when choosing whom to support in November.
The poll also found that 49 percent of likely voters said they would vote for a candidate who holds a different view on abortion than they do, provided the candidate agrees with them on most other issues.
In short, despite the Democrat Party’s plan to put abortion front and center in the midterms, abortion isn’t driving this bus.
A staggering 74 percent of likely voters said the country is on the wrong track while only 23 percent said it’s on the right track.
Republicans also lead Democrats in the state legislative generic ballot 47 percent to 45 percent.
So not only are Republicans poised for a Red Wave in Congress, it’s looking like that Red Wave will be splashing onto state legislatures as well.
