The FBI released its annual report on national crime in 2021, showing murders slightly increasing above 2020's historic numbers.The data comes just a month ahead of midterms and as voters say crime is one of their top concerns as they head to the polls. "No question that the GOP has an advantage on crime, as [Democrats] are still saddled with the ‘defund’ movement from two years ago.

Both crime and immigration could play important secondary roles in the campaign, especially if the inflation issue begins to fade.

Further, crime is a top concern among suburban women — a key constituency this fall," Neil Newhouse, pollster and co-founder of Public Opinion Strategies, told Fox News Digital earlier this month.

The FBI released its annual crime data on Wednesday for 2021, which estimated that murders slightly rose last year compared to 2020’s historically bloody year.
