Inflation is Americans' top concern: Pew study

Americans see inflation as the top problem facing the nation today, according to a Pew Research Center survey released Thursday.

Pew found in the poll that seven-in-10 Americans view inflation as a “very big problem” for the country.

The survey found 84% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents worried most about inflation, and the concern is bipartisan: 57% of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents rank fast-rising prices at the top, too.

The next-biggest concerns on the survey were affordable health care (55%) and violent crime (54%). About half also described gun violence and the federal budget deficit as very big problems.

Larger shares of Democrats saw gun violence (70%), affordable health care (65%) and climate change (63%) as very big problems. Only 16% of Republicans described climate change as a major issue.

By contrast, 65% of Republicans and only 19% of Democrats view illegal immigration as a very big problem.
