Voters are far more concerned about inflation than COVID-19: Survey

Voters are far more concerned about the record-setting inflation crippling the economy than they are about COVID-19, according to a survey released Thursday.

The survey, conducted by Decision Desk HQ and commissioned by NewsNation, found approximately 60.1% of registered voters reported to be "very concerned" about inflation, compared to 45.6% who reported being "very concerned" about COVID-19.

"The population does not have a positive outlook on COVID or the economy, and it appears they blame Joe Biden," said Scott Tranter, an adviser for Decision Desk HQ.

Roughly 55% disapprove of Biden's management of COVID-19, with the president receiving an approval rating of 42%.

A plurality of respondents named inflation as the most significant problem facing the United States, and over 40% reported being "worse off" financially than they were one year ago.

Regarding COVID-19, the survey data suggest the majority do not trust Biden or the federal government to deliver accurate information regarding the pandemic.

Close to two-thirds of respondents (63.2%) trusted their doctor for the most accurate information, and 51.8% believe the pandemic "will never be over," according to the survey.
