(West Long Branch, NJ) -- Americans are thinking about the economy and abortions as they gear up to head to the polls for midterms.

A Monmouth University survey found that 26-percent of respondents say the economy is the top concern influencing their vote. Meanwhile, abortions are trailing shortly behind at 25-percent.

This is in contrast to the university's 2018 poll which found the top issues were healthcare, the economy, and immigration.

The latest poll was conducted following the Supreme Court draft opinion was leaked showing the high court is considering overturning the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. The midterm elections will be held in November.
