2022 Midterms are Right Around the Corner


2022 Midterms are Right Around the Corner

This November voters across the country will elect candidates at the local, state, and federal level, important races that will have a direct impact as to the 30 million self-employed business owners.

Historically, business owners tend to have higher than average engagement in the political process, in 2020, it was estimated that 90% of business owners voted in the Presidential election. According to a September 2022 Goldman Sachs poll of business owners, “86% of small business owners say they are definitely planning to vote, with 91% saying a candidate’s small business policy positions will play an important role in who they choose to support at the ballot box. Furthermore, 81% said they are more likely to support a candidate who pledges to reauthorize the SBA.”

Every election is important, but given the challenging economic and social times we live in, the 2022 midterm election will be important as the country continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, work to address a challenging economic forecast with rising prices and rising interest rates, the erosion of public trust and faith in our institutions, and finally, continue to mitigate and minimize the impact of the global geo-political threats, including the Russian aggression in Ukraine.
