POLL: Inflation Is Still Ravaging Grocery Budgets

According to a report by Rasmussen, 79% of American Adults indicated that they are currently paying more for groceries now than they were in 2023. Only 15% currently stated that they aren’t paying more for groceries. 

60% stated that rising food prices have prompted them to change their eating habits. By contrast, 35% of American adults have not changed their eating habits due to inflation. 

51% of adults believe that the amount they spend on groceries will be higher in 2025. Just 11% believe they’ll be paying less for groceries in 2025, whereas 23% project that their grocery bill will stay roughly the same. 

An additional 16% are unsure. 

As far as political leanings are concerned, 59% of Republican voters, 45% of Democrat voters, and 50% of independent voters expect individuals’ grocery spending to be higher in 2025. 

With respect to race, 61% of white voters, 50% of black voters, 69% of Hispanic voters, and 51% of other non-white minorities indicated that higher food prices have compelled them to change their eating habits. 

65% of private sector workers, 58% of government employees, and 50% of retirees noted that higher food prices have forced them to change their eating habits. 

Two-thirds of Americans making below $50,000 annually indicated that higher food prices have propelled them to change their eating habits. By contrast, 40% of individuals making $200,000 yearly revealed that inflation has changed their eating habits. 

Inflation is no joke. It’s a policy that’s the result of easy money policies implemented by central banks. It hits the middle and working classes the hardest as they have to put up with higher costs across the board. 

If the US is to remain a viable environment for socio-economic advancement, it must get inflation under control. The most effective way of doing so is by abolishing the Federal Reserve.
