- Voters were highly concerned about inflation as well as their personal financial conditions and the overall economy.
- The majority of voters viewed corporate greed and price gouging as a top driver of inflation. “Large corporations have been unfairly raising their prices at the expense of consumers” was the message voters heard most from Democrats on inflation. This was also the most frequently heard Democratic message on inflation by Independents.
- Voters strongly supported Democratic priorities to address inflation, including addressing corporate profiteering, investing in American manufacturing, increasing taxes on corporations, and expanding the Child Tax Credit.
- Contrary to the predictions of many before the election, voters didn’t punish Democrats for taking bold action on the economy. In fact, these findings suggest that Democrats’ strong performance in the election was a result of their progressive economic agenda, not in spite of it.
