Three-quarters of Americans report having financial difficulties due to inflation, while most voters think that the economy will be even worse in a year, according to a Fox News poll released Sunday.
Frustration with Democrats in power as the economy is experiencing record inflation may result in a major win for the Republican party.
The poll found that 44% of voters said they would vote for a Republican compared to 41% who said they would vote for a Democrat if the mid-terms were held today. Fox News stated that a 3-point advantage will lead to the GOP gaining about 23 seats.
The Republican victory would be especially notable as this fall’s mid-terms will be the first election with new maps drawn after the 2020 census.
Despite the fact that at least six Democratic-leaning seats have been added without any additional GOP-leaning seats, according to FiveThirtyEight, Republicans are still favored to take back the House.
