Inflation is a big problem for Arizona residents, an Arizona Public Opinion Pulse (AZPOP) Survey conducted by OH Predictive Insights shows.
Released Thursday, the poll concluded that 62% of Arizonans had seen a monthly spending increase of $200 due to inflation.
The Phoenix metropolitan area is one of the nation’s hardest hit in terms of inflation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics released data on July 13 showing costs have increased 12% in 2022.
Reacting to the poll, Chuck Warren, Managing Director of the September Group, LLC. said that inflation amounts to a significant tax increase on the American people.
“Americans are basically experiencing the biggest tax increase in four decades,” Warren said in a press release. “Due to a myriad of factors including bad public policy, everyone is experiencing a massive tax increase that is impacting their household budgets and family’s lifestyle.”
Inflation has hit certain groups of people especially hard. The poll found that 84% of students and 79% of homemakers say inflation has negatively impacted them.
That said, OH Predictive Insights chief of research Mike Noble thinks inflation will be a top issue for Arizona voters this November.
“As wages struggle to keep pace with the rising prices of everyday items like fuel and food, the effects of inflation are burning in Arizonans’ wallets, and those concerns will almost certainly be voiced in the ballot box,” Noble said in a press release.
Older residents were the least likely to say that they had felt the effects of inflation (55%). However, it is impacting a majority of them as well.
The poll was conducted between July 5 to July 14 and had a 3.2% margin of error.
Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.
Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.
Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about.
It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.
The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
