This is one of two Fox News Polls released Thursday.
With just under a year until the 2024 elections, Republicans are seen as better able to handle top voter concerns like inflation, and safety-related issues such as crime, national security, and terrorism, while they favor Democrats on lower-ranking problems such as climate change, abortion, and transgender issues.
As voters zero in on issues that concern them most, the latest Fox News survey, released Thursday, finds three levels of concern.
Economic concerns are still at the forefront of voters’ minds, as 89% are extremely or very worried about inflation and higher prices. This first tier also includes threats to personal freedoms and rights, higher crimes rates across the country, and political divisions (82% each).
The next tier sees issue concern in the 70% range and includes the Israel-Hamas war (74%), attacks by Islamic terrorists in the U.S. (73%), gun laws (72%), and abortion policy (71%).
All other concerns are under 70%, this third tier encompasses border security (69%), political showdown over the debt ceiling (69%),
