This is going to affect the midterms.

According to voters in Harvard Square the two issues they will be looking at ahead of the midterm election are the economy and access to abortions. 

“I think if something like Roe v. Wade were to be overturned” and “what was the leaked memo becomes the final decision, I think that should probably be top of mind for people,” Nick, male, told Fox News when asked. “It feels like there are few issues that are as important as that.”

The draft Supreme Court opinion which was leaked last week indicated that the Supreme Court is looking to overturn Roe v. Wade. This move would return the abortion questions to each state. The high court has so far said the document leaked is authentic but it is not a final decision. 

Cassandra, another voter in Massachusetts said that she will “continue to support the politicians who support women’s rights.”

According to the RMG Research group even if Roe v. Wade was overturned there would be very few effects on the midterm elections. However, a Washington Post-ABC News poll showed that the majority of Americans supported the Roe v. Wade ruling and did not want to see it overturned. 

Nick also referred to the economy as one of the key issues taking priority for this midterm election, especially talking about inflation and the “cost of living going up.”

In April inflation was 8.3%, which while lower than previous months remains near the 40-year high reached a few months ago. 

“I don’t think the political system can bring that much change,” Ben noted. “I don’t think the United States government will matter that much within the next decade with the types of changes that are going to come.”
