Most people care more about the economy than abortion: Poll


Although it seems like the entire country
has been talking about

Roe v. Wade

on Friday
, most people are more concerned with eking out a living, according to a
new poll

Less than 15% of people thought
was America's most important issue leading up to the November election. Only 23% said abortion was more important than the economy, a USA Today/Suffolk University
poll showed

This means that 62% view abortion as important, but not the biggest issue in their lives.

The conservative wing of the
Supreme Court
overturned Roe v. Wade in a 5-3-1 decision that eliminated a federal right to abortion, allowing the states to make their own laws.


While cable news programs will be filled with analysts breaking down the new ruling, it will have no effect on how voters will cast their midterm ballots, 3 out of 4 survey respondents said. However, 19% said they would be more likely to vote in November.

Most said they wanted federal abortion protections to remain in place (61%), while 28% said the law should be overturned.

Pollsters surveyed 1,000 registered voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. The majority of the respondents were between 35 and 64 years old and split between Democrats, Republicans, and independents, as well as male and female. Most respondents were white.

When asked about the economy, 71% said it was on the wrong track, and 57% said they disapproved of President Joe Biden’s performance.
