Most Americans continue to lack confidence in the Federal Reserve Board’s ability to keep inflation under control, and they overwhelmingly expect to pay more for the groceries they buy.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 78% of American adults are at least somewhat concerned about inflation, including 49% who are very concerned. Just 19% are not very or not at all concerned about inflation.
The survey of 1,000 American Adults nationwide was conducted on June 10-11, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
