Spritlzer mansplains what people care about.

Ok, I'm sorry...you fell for that headline. It does sound a bit arrogant, but let's face it I'm a jackass.


Ok, let's get down to brass tacks. Most folks are pissed about crime and inflation. You know which party is getting the lion's share of the blame, right? It rhymes with Democrat.


Sure, folks are also pissed about Roe v Wade, but that's down the list and varies from state to state. It's a good horse for the Dems to ride but in the end won't hunt. What I'm trying to say here is that Joe needs a miracle this November. He needs Trump to do something really big!


Inflation, Crime Still Top Concerns for Voters

Rasmussen Polling

Monday, August 22, 2022


The issues most important to American voters haven’t changed all year, as inflation and violent crime remain atop the list.


The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 85% of Likely U.S. voters are at least somewhat concerned about inflation, including 57% who are Very Concerned. That’s almost unchanged since May. (To see survey question wording, click here.)


While concerns about abortion rights have increased since the Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, most voters are still more worried about crime. Eighty-six percent (86%) of voters are at least somewhat concerned about violent crime, including 61% who are Very Concerned. Seventy percent (70%) of voters are at least somewhat concerned about abortion rights, including 50% who are Very Concerned.


While 67% of Democrats are Very Concerned about abortion rights, that sentiment is shared by only 38% of Republicans and 45% of voters not affiliated with either major party. By comparison, majorities of all political categories – 73% of Republicans, 50% of Democrats and 62% of unaffiliated voters – are Very Concerned about violent crime.
