Axios is out with the results of new focus groups with swing voters this morning and the results are clear: voters are living in fear of House Democrats’ economy. Key findings:
- Swing voters think America’s economy is “artificially jacked-up, like a first-grader who scarfed down a bag of Sour Patch Kids.”
- Only 3 of 13 voters said they felt the U.S. economy is “booming.” The rest expressed fear of an impending crash following the injection of federal stimulus money during the pandemic.
- Eight of the 13 voters said they are apprehensive about inflation in their area, citing costs going up in a number of sectors, including groceries, gas, oil and real estate.
- Nearly all the voters (11 of 13) also found believable an assertion made by many businesses: that people are not looking for jobs because they make more from claiming unemployment benefits.
- 10 of the 13 voters are worried about the national debt. They fear tax hikes and believe that Social Security is at stake.
“Voters are watching in fear as Democrats’ run up the debt, run up their tax bills, run up inflation and threaten to crash things all over again,” said CLF Communications Director Calvin Moore. “Democrats put their big-spending political priorities ahead of what’s best for our recovery and voters know exactly who to hold accountable for it next November.’
