White suburban women are revolting against the Democrats heading into the midterms, a new poll has revealed.
A new Wall Street Journal poll shows white suburban women, who make up 20% of the electorate, now favor the Republicans over Democrats by 15 percentage points.
The result is a staggering 26-point swing from August.
The poll shows that 46% of registered voters would support the Republican candidate in their congressional district.
Meanwhile, 44 percent would support the Democrat.
The poll revealed that 66 percent of white suburban women say inflation is causing major financial hardship,
That number is up from 54 percent in August.
Fifty-four percent of white suburban women believe that Democrat President Joe Biden’s economy is in a recession.
A whopping seventy-four percent say his economy is headed down the wrong track.
“It’s absolutely true that these women have shifted their gaze more on the economy than abortion,” Democrat pollster Molly Murphy said.
Additionally, 74 percent of white suburban women said the nation is headed in the wrong direction, but only sixty-five percent said so in August.
In even more bad news for the Democrats, the overwhelming majority of respondents now say they would vote for President Donald Trump over Biden if they both run in the 2024 election.
As for 2024, the poll claimed that “if the 2024 election were between Mr. Biden and former President Donald Trump, 41% of white suburban women said they would vote for Mr. Biden and 52% Mr. Trump.
“In August, 55% said Mr. Biden and 39% Mr. Trump.”
“The focus on the economic stuff, particularly inflation, is helpful to the GOP headed into the final stretch,” pollster Tony Fabrizio said.
According to The New York Post:
Along with voters’ dour economic outlook, the poll shows that 55% of them disapprove of the job President Biden is doing and 54% believe his policies have had a negative effect on the economy.
Only 27% think Biden’s policies have been positive, while 43% approve of his job performance.
Jennifer Hackworth, a stay-at-home mom of three from outside Pittsburgh, said her kids’ clothes cost more, as do grocery items like milk and other staples.
“The Dems have kind of proved that they haven’t been able to make a change with [inflation]. It’s just gotten worse in the last couple of years,” she told the Journal.
Hackworth, 39, said she usually leans Republican but is undecided on how to vote in the Senate race between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz.
She said her abortion views align with Fetterman, but she said she’s inclined to vote for Oz.
WSJ: The GOP has seen a shift in its favor among several voter groups, including Latino voters and women, and particularly white suburban women. That group shifted 26 points away from Democrats since the Journal’s August poll and now favors the GOP by 15%.
