The Tuesday publication of a new study by The New York Times and Siena College brings further bad news for Biden and the Democratic Party.
In October, independent women’s support for Democrats and Republicans differed by an astounding 32 points, up 14 points from September.
According to the poll, 49 percent of potential voters said they intended to support a Republican for Congress on November 8 compared to 45 percent who intended to support a Democrat. The outcome is an improvement for Republicans compared to September, when the most recent Times/Siena poll showed a one-point Democratic advantage among potential voters.
Women who identified as independent voters made the biggest movement. They had a 14 point advantage for the Democrats in September. Republicans were now supported by independent women by 18 points.
Inflation and the economy are voters’ top concerns, exceeding Jan. 6, climate change, abortion, and the pandemic by a large margin, according to the Times/Siena survey, which is consistent with other previous polls conducted by reputable sources.
Republicans now have a 10-point advantage over Democrats among crucial independent voters as of September, making it evident that the demography of independent voters is moving to them in greater numbers. According to the Times, undecided voters also shifted their support to the GOP.
Democratic mortgage loan manager Robin Ackerman, 37, declares: “I’m shifting more towards Republican because I feel like they’re more geared towards business,” She went on to say that “1,000 percent” the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade, “that doesn’t really have a lot to do with my decision,”. She added, “I’m more worried about other things.”
The Times continued: “Democrats have no margin for error in 2022 — with the slimmest of majorities in the House and a 50-50 Senate, where the flipping of a single seat in that chamber would deliver a Republican majority.”
Nancy Pelosi, meanwhile, referred to the Times/Siena survey as an oddity in an appearance with MSNBC.
Even though the parliamentary session was “extraordinary,” anchor Andrea Mitchell claimed Pelosi’s poll numbers were declining for Democrats.
“Despite all the legislative accomplishments, I want to cite them, I want to say it’s been an extraordinary session, you and the president have done so much in terms of domestic concerns, the economy. Why is this message, why do you think the president hasn’t gotten this message through to the voters?” Mitchel enquired.
“Well, first of all, let me say that I think that much of what you’ve said I don’t agree with, that is to say ‘The New York Times’ poll, I think this is an outlier poll, you just cite one poll, but all the other polls,” Pelosi said.
“It’s also – the ‘RealClearPolitics’ average is showing similar issues.” Mitchell added.
“No, but these, but that was one that brought down the average, and it was an outlier. It wasn’t even that big a sample. So I – I dismissed that. I have been – since Congress adjourned, I’ve been in an average of five states a week. And I can tell you that women’s concerns about their freedom are very, very much still very significant in terms of how they will vote.” despite surveys suggesting that abortion is no longer a major concern for women, Pelosi claimed.
The Daily Caller reports:
Despite polls suggesting that voter concerns about the economy and inflation are stronger than those related to abortion, Democratic super PACs and candidates have spent close to $18 million on abortion-related advertisements. According to a Monmouth University poll conducted in July, only 5% of voters ranked abortion as their top concern, while 63% cited inflation.
