Key Takeaways:

  • Even Democrats believe the country is heading down the wrong track.
  • Generic ballot has dipped for Republicans post-Dobbs, now at R+1.
  • The top issue, Inflation (40%), dipped slightly from a June high of 47%, but it still remains a significant issue for majority of voters.
  • The contrast ballot dropped to R+4 (Republican check-and-balance on Biden).
  • Voters reveal they are in favor of protecting abortion access post-Dobbs, with 34% wanting abortion protected at the state level.
  • Abortion is not significant to Independents who care more about the issue of fighting inflation. Nearly half of Independent voters do not base their vote on a candidate’s abortion stance.
  • Economic confidence has improved from June’s all time low. Independents are still more concerned (67-30), while Dems have grown even more pessimistic (45-53).
