38% of US voters will consider candidates’ position on crypto in midterms: Survey

Roughly a third of eligible voters in the United States will be “considering crypto policy positions” when choosing candidates in the 2022 midterm elections, according to a new survey.

In the results of a 2,029-person survey conducted by The Harris Poll between Oct. 6 and 11, 57% of likely midterm voters say they would be more likely to vote for a political candidate interested in staying informed about cryptocurrencies, while 38% said they would consider positions on crypto policy when voting in the midterms. The survey, initiated by Grayscale Investments, also suggests that crypto regulation is a bipartisan issue, with 87% of Democratic and 76% of Republican respondents saying they want clarity from the U.S. government.
