Newly released polling data shows that voters care a lot about crime, which will likely be bad news for Democrats in November.
Rasmussen released new polling that showed the majority of surveyed voters say crime is getting worse and that it will be a big issue in the midterm elections.
“Two-thirds of voters say crime is getting worse in America and even more expect the issue to be important in the midterm congressional elections,” Rasmussen said. “A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 65% of Likely U.S. voters believe the problem of violent crime in America is getting worse. Only 11% think the crime problem is getting better, while another 22% say violent crime is staying about the same. These findings have changed only slightly since December.”
This feeling has been continuing for months, especially since the Black Lives Matter riots in the summer of 2020.
Rasmussen released data in December showing the majority of Americans are concerned about rising crime.
“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 89% of Likely U.S. voters are concerned about the problem of violent crime in America, including 64% who say they’re Very Concerned,” Rasmussen said. “That’s a significant increase from July, when 79% were concerned, including 49% who were Very Concerned, about the violent crime problem.”
