Grocery prices may be the biggest issues for voters

May 17 – A new poll recently revealed grocery prices top the list when it comes to the biggest problem facing voters and their families.

The Fox poll shows 89% of voters say current grocery prices are a real problem.

Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM pointed out, “Remember, you didn’t have this problem with the last go around and now you do. Put two and two together.”

The poll also showed 84% of voters are concerned with gas prices.

Ryan said, “Remember you didn’t have this problem. And now you do.

Utilities and health care concerned 81% and 80% of voters, respectively.

Ryan said, “Think about health care…shouldn’t be too difficult to put two and two together and we’re continuing on with this regime. You want four more years and to finish off your pocketbook, then that’s what you do in November. To carry on four more years, or will you make the change? These are pretty startling numbers, but we understand it’s right before our very eyes.”

Attorney Clint Barkdoll noted, “Politically this is a huge problem for Joe Biden. A lot of pollsters political scientists talk about this grocery issue might be the single biggest influence in how people vote. They don’t care about any of the other things that might benefit either candidate but this grocery issue, you see it week to week, you feel the pain of it week to week, and it has not improved. I call this the tale of two economies from the old Tale of Two Cities. It’s the best of times, the worst of times. Inflation just continues to be a huge problem. Contrast that with once again yesterday, all time record highs on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. So you have this one category people are making out like bandits that are heavily invested in the stock market, record highs it seems like every week or two, but then everybody else street level go into the grocery store, the gas station, you’re feeling the pain week after week after week and you don’t feel like there’s any improvement either.”

Ryan said, “It’s 89%. How can you ignore this? Then you see the mouthpiece for the administration touting Bidenomics and saying well, things are improving out there. They’re not improving. How they are so tone deaf to what’s happening in real world USA. They’re doing the pandering tour here, let’s give out free stuff and buy people until we get past November 5, 6, 7 and then we’ll put the squeeze on even worse for you.”

Barkdoll said, “That’s the concern. I mean, we’re not far away from the general election and you don’t see these inflationary pressures easing anytime soon. The federal government keeps spending money like crazy, that’s contributing to the inflationary environment. You’ve also seen the uptick in gas prices lately and typically going into the summer, most people say Memorial Day weekend next weekend is the unofficial start to summer. That’s when you get that summer blend of gas. That typically adds a few more cents per gallon to gas. So all of these are really genuine pressure points and I think electorally you’re going to see some of this translate in the fall.”
