White Suburban Women Running Back Into GOP’s Arms, Leftist Elites Enraged

White Suburban Women Running Back Into GOP’s Arms, Leftist Elites Enraged

Heading down the stretch of the 2022 midterm elections, white suburban women – who comprise 20% of the nation’s electorate – are swinging back to Republicans in a big way. 

A new Wall Street Journal poll finds that white women in the suburbs now favor Republican congressional candidates by a whopping 15% margin — a jaw-dropping 27-percentage-point move just since August.  

The shift has largely been fueled by the group’s deepening concerns over inflation and the economy. About 54% say the country is already in a recession while 74% say the economy is heading in the wrong direction. Those numbers are up August readings of 43% and 59%, respectively. 

Democrat hopes that the Supreme Court’s June overturning of Roe v Wade would spark women to rally around Democratic candidates haven’t been realized. The journal found that rising prices are the top concern, with 34% of suburban white women giving it top weight. Abortion comes in third, with just 16% calling it their top issue.

“It’s absolutely true that these women have shifted their gaze more on the economy than abortion,” Democratic pollster Molly Murphy tells the Journal. However, a different Democratic and liberal-media drumbeat has achieved meaningful traction: 28% say their top issue is “threats to democracy,” making it the second-ranked concern.  

By the nature of common household roles, women are arguably in the best position to closely observe surging prices: According to Pew Research, women are the primary grocery shopper in 80% of families with kids — and 75% of childless couples.

That’s to say nothing of their discretionary purchases…just ask Reggie Warrington and Wellman College professor Sherman Klump:

When asked which party is best able to deal with inflation, white suburban women choose Republicans over Democrats by a huge margin: 55% to 24%. Two-thirds say rising prices are causing either major or minor financial strain. 

On handling the overall economy, Republicans are on top again, 50% to 35%. However, that result flips an August reading that had the Democrats far ahead among these women.

Confirming a key 2022 dynamic, the poll found President Biden is an anchor pulling Democratic candidates down with him. In August, 51% of white suburban women approved of his performance. Fast-forward to this late-October poll, and Biden’s approval rating has plummeted to just 38%, with 74% saying the country is heading in the wrong direction.  

Women played a huge role in Biden’s 2020 victory. Though it’s not a direct comparison to the white suburban women profiled above, one exit poll found white women with a college degree favored Biden over Trump by nearly 40 percentage points

The View’s Sonny Hostin had her own take as usual…

There’s one more dose of bad news for Democrats: This group is highly likely to vote, according to the Journal: “85% of these voters said they were very motivated to vote, making them among the most-motivated groups of those surveyed.”
