In yet another example of how Democrats are in trouble for this coming midterm election, Google searches for “abortion” have disappeared from the top ten searches as voters become more interested in looking up information about the border crisis and immigration.

Crime, immigration, and economic issues have knocked abortion out of the top ten searches according to Axios.

Axios laments that “topics more likely to favor Democrats have been losing ground to those that may favor Republicans” in Google searches.

This is bad news because abortion is nearly the only issue that Democrats have been trying to sell voters ahead of the 2022 midterms that are only six weeks off.

As Axios noted, “Interactions on stories about DeSantis flying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard far outnumbered those on the stories about abortion or the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago during that same time period.”

Axios added:

  • Meanwhile, searches related to immigration and the border vaulted into the top 10 last week, as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis grabbed national attention by flying asylum seekers to Martha’s Vineyard.
  • Crime has continued to hover around the top 10 as an issue many voters have been paying close attention to.
  • Search interest in inflation and generally about the economy has been rising again.
  • One positive trend for Democrats: Declining interest in “gas prices,” after the topic landed in the top 3 in early June. That decline tracked with falling prices at the pump.

Axios also noted that jobs, taxes, and the economy are also consistently in the top ten. Those issues are also extremely bad for Democrats right now.

What the Google search listings show is that Americans are finally starting to really delve into the election issues, and abortion is NOT one they care much about.
