Rising prices will push the majority of Republican women to vote


A recent poll found that 52% of Republican women said rising prices of daily consumer goods made them much more likely to get out and vote in the medium term.

The poll which was conducted for All In Together, a non-profit women’s organization, found that a majority of women (54%) overall are more likely to vote in this year’s election due to the rise prices. Republican women are “excited” on the issue.

Thus, acknowledging that the failed policies of the Democrats and the absence of effective economic policies to help curb inflation make women more vocal at the ballot box.

In fact, last Tuesday, Department of Labor data showed the consumer price index rose 8.5% in March from a year ago. It also showed that overall food prices are up 8.8% from a year ago, meaning everyday food ideas have increased while even the price of a kitchen table has increased. 16.8% compared to a year ago.

Here are some of the most striking movements in food prices:

  • Ground beef: up 13.8%
  • Steaks: up 16.4%
  • Bacon: up 18.2%
  • Pork chops: up 13.8%
  • Chicken: up 13.4%
  • Fresh fish: +11.3%
  • Whole fresh milk: up 14.5%
  • Coffee: up 11.2%
  • Fresh fruit: up 10.1%
  • Lettuce: up 12.0%
  • Vinaigrette: up 13.9%
  • Soups: up 10.3%
  • Baby food: +10.8%
  • Breakfast cereals: +9.2%
  • Bread: up 7.1%
  • Cookies and muffins: up 10.8%
  • Lunch meats: up 12.7%

But food was not the only problem for American families. Americans have seen a substantial increase in their energy bills as inflation soars. The overall energy price is up 32% from a year ago and 11.4% from February to March this year alone.

Since last March, oil has risen 70.1%, up 22.3% from February alone. Motor fuel is also up 48.2% over the past 12 months, 19.8% from February alone.

The survey was conducted March 29-31 by Emerson College Polling and advised by Lake Research Partners for the nonprofit women’s organization All In Together.

There were 1,000 registered voters who participated, with no indication of the percentage of women. The poll saw a margin of error of plus or minus three percent.
