Poll: Americans forced to change eating habit due to high prices claiming Republicans better than Democrats

According to a Rasmussen Reports poll issued on Thursday, high prices in President Joe Biden’s America are pushing Americans to adjust their feeding habits.

The Poll shows that more Americans believe Republicans are better qualified than Democrats to handle critical economic challenges like inflation as the November election approaches.

The vast majority of Americans, 87%, confirmed paying more for food now than they did a year ago. 93% of Republicans, 85% of Democrats, and 84% of independents agree with this.

“When it comes to dealing with the economy, which party do you think would do a better job: the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, or both about the same?” The poll inquired, posing the same question over a range of topics.

The general forecast is not encouraging, as 64% believe they will be paying even more for groceries in a year, while only 9% believe it will be lower. Once again, there is bipartisan agreement, with 77% of Republicans, 55% of Democrats, and 63% of independents agreeing that they will spend more on food in a year.

According to this poll, Republicans have a slight advantage in handling the economy, as 42 percent chose the GOP, compared to 26 percent who chose Democrats. Seventeen percent chose neither, and 13 percent said they handle it “about the same.”

Respondents were also asked if rising food prices had prompted them to change their eating habits, and 55% replied yes. This is the case for half of Democrats, as well as 62% of Republicans and 56% of independents:

Republicans (77%) are more likely than Democrats (55%) or those who are not connected with either major party (63%) to expect their grocery spending to increase in the coming year. Democrats are less likely than Republicans to say that rising food prices have influenced their eating habits.

Women are more likely than males to claim that rising food prices have prompted them to change their eating habits (58% vs. 53%).

In comparison to those under 40, older Americans are more likely to say they are paying more for food now than they were a year ago.

When it comes to controlling inflation, another top issue, 41% said Republicans are better qualified to tackle the problem, while 20% say Democrats are more suited – a 21% difference.
