Morning Consult reporter Claire Williams says polling from her organization shows concerns about the economy are by far the most pressing issue on voters’ minds ahead of the presidential election.

That largely matches analysis provided to by a number of pollsters over the course of the two-day Midwest Polling Summitt.

Williams, who covers financial policy and the economy, also told’s DC Wrap Interview Series a Morning Consult analysis shows consumer confidence has dropped sharply among swing voters in Wisconsin in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

She couldn’t say definitively how that drop in confidence would affect the outcome of the presidential race. But she did say that means swing voters are “not thinking as positively about the economy, which is one of Trump’s big issues.”

“Maybe they’re not feeling as positive about that as the Trump campaign would like them to,” she added.
