U.S. public political concerns shift from virus to economy: poll

Only 37 percent of U.S. interviewees name controlling the pandemic as one of their top five priorities for the government to work on in 2022, despite the Omicron surge across the country, a new poll has showed.

The poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research also revealed that 68 percent of respondents chose the economy as their priorities after the U.S. consumer prices mounted 6.8 percent year-on-year by November, a nearly four-decade high.

COVID-19 is overshadowed by concerns about the economy, according to the poll, citing the previous finding that 53 percent of interviewees named the virus as their priority at the same time a year ago.
