Nancy Pelosi Dismisses Polling Results Showing Top Voter Issues
(ConservativeHub.com) – From the coronavirus pandemic and its repercussions on the economy to the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, the past few years have brought political issues to the forefront of many Americans’ minds. Despite numerous polls showing the economy and crime as top priorities for voters this year, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) adamantly maintains their primary concern is actually abortion.
On October 3, a Monmouth University study, which sampled 806 adults from September 21 to 25, revealed 82% of Americans believe inflation is an “extremely or very important” priority. Concerns about crime came in a close second at 72%. Abortion wasn’t near the top of the list, polling as the seventh most important priority at just 56%.
Similarly, a New York Times and Sienna College poll conducted from October 9 to 12 with 792 registered voters responding suggested citizens believe the economy and addressing inflation are the two most important problems facing politicians.
Despite these statistics, on Tuesday, October 18, Pelosi told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, “The New York Times poll, I think, is an outlier poll.” Referencing a recent RealClearPolitics poll showing similar results, the House Speaker dismissed the data because “it wasn’t even that big a sample.”

Pelosi suggested that from her travels and interactions, she feels abortion is among the most important issues for voters. However, while polling is never spot-on, these surveys often give Americans a decent insight into what their peers think.
How would you rate Americans’ most significant concerns ahead of the upcoming midterm elections?
