Newly released polling data shows Americans are increasingly pessimistic about the job market.
Finish the story after this video:
Rasmusen Reports released the poll, which fond that most Americans expect unemployment to rise.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 39% of American Adults believe unemployment will be higher a year from now, compared to just 18% who expect unemployment to be lower next year,” the group said. “Twenty-eight percent (28%) think the unemployment level will remain about the same, and another 14% are not sure.”
This poll comes after the latest job data showed there are nearly two open jobs for every unemployed worker.
Americans, though, don’t expect things to improve. Meanwhile, inflation continues to rise at the highest level in four decades.
These and other economic woes have the economy at the forefront of most voters’ minds. Another Rasmussen poll found economic issues are by far Americans’ biggest concern going into the midterm elections.
“A week before Election Day, nearly half of voters say inflation and the economy are the most important issues for them in this year’s congressional midterms,” Rasmussen said. “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 26% of Likely U.S. Voters say inflation is the most important issue in how they vote in this year’s congressional elections, while another 22% name the economy as the top issue. These are followed by abortion rights (19%), illegal immigration (8%), climate change (8%) and violent crime (7%). Only two percent (2%) of voters name either the war in Ukraine or LGBTQ rights as the most important issue for them in the midterm election.”
