Midterms 2022: Top issues for Americans are inflation, abortion and crime

Economy, abortion rights, immigration and democracy dominate political debates ahead of the critical Mid Term elections of 2022.

US politicians are making their final appeals to voters ahead of critical midterm elections.

Republicans are seeking to retake control of Congress from their Democratic Party rivals.

The party is lamenting the state of the economy amid a global financial downturn and a steady rise in the cost of living.

Democrats are seen focusing on abortion rights after the US Supreme Court revoked the constitutional right to the procedure.

The November 8 election will see all the seats in the House of Representatives and more than a third of the Senate up for grabs.

This will have an enormous influence on the rest of President Joe Biden’s term.

Republicans are turning opposition to Biden’s immigration policies into a political rallying cry ahead of the elections.

With Trump likely to seek the White House again in 2024, Democrats say blocking a Republican return to power will safeguard American democracy.
