 Congressional Democrats earning back voter trust: poll
by Julia Mueller - 08/04/22 2:50 PM ET

Democrats in Congress are earning back voter trust ahead of this year’s midterms, new polling shows, following months of low approval ratings for the Biden administration.

A Morning Consult-POLITICO poll released Wednesday found that congressional Democrats have been easing ahead of their across-the-aisle colleagues in average voter trust on key issues for the last few months.

Trust in Democrats’ handling of immigration, gun policy, inflation and the economy have all gone up since mid-July, according to the poll.

Democrats still lag behind Republicans on the matter of inflation and economy, but trust in Democrats’ ability to grapple with the issues has gone up since a big drop as prices surged in mid-June.

The economy continues to be a major topic for voters, with 55 percent of Republicans and 30 percent of Democrats saying issues like taxes and jobs are top-of-mind, according to the poll.

The next-highest priority for Democrats, at 25 percent, was women’s issues, including birth control and abortion.

The congressional majority won out over Republicans in voter trust on climate, health care, COVID-19 and voting rights.

The poll, conducted July 28-31, surveyed 2,006 registered U.S. voters’ trust across 14 issues. The unweighted margin of error is 2 percentage points.

What is the weighted margin of error since this is a weighted poll?

So ... the fact that polls aren't reliable doesn't matter?

From the article:

Quote
The Democrats’ hold their biggest advantage over the GOP on the climate and the environment, but the president’s party also leads on issues such as health care, voting rights, COVID-19, energy and guns

When it comes to the pocketbook issues, the top concern for the bulk of voters this year, congressional Republicans have a double-digit trust advantage on inflation (47% to 36%) and a smaller edge on the economy generally (46% to 39%).

Guess they forgot to consider that when they made up that title.

Page 407 of the poll shows that a higher percentage of Republicans voted for Trump in 2020 than did in 2016.  Likewise, a higher percentage of Democrats voted for Hillary in 2016 than voted for Biden in 2020.  So maybe they should be asking how it is possible that Biden got more votes than Trump.

DEMS use what is called 'fuzzy math'; only they truly understand it.
