Bad news for Biden: Majority says economy worse under Joe

Biden Caravan
A majority of likely voters says the economy has declined under Joe Biden.

A majority of likely voters “agree the U.S. economy has gotten worse since President Joe Biden was inaugurated, but they are divided when it comes to placing blame for the decline,” according to the results of a new Rasmussen poll released Friday.

Fifty-seven percent say the economy has declined in the 10 months since Biden took office, while only 21 percent think things have improved, a better than 2-to-1 sentiments against the Delaware Democrat’s administration. The remaining 19 percent think the economy has stayed “about the same,” Rasmussen discovered.

This could be why Biden’s job performance numbers continue deep in the negative. Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll is unchanged since CFL looked at it a couple of days ago: 42 percent approve of his job performance but 57 percent disapprove. The real hurt in those numbers, however, is that only 21 percent “strongly” approve, while a devastating 48 percent—again more than 2-to-1—strongly disapprove.

Of course there is a partisan breakdown of the numbers, Rasmussen acknowledged.

“Solid majorities of both Republicans (84%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (66%) say the economy has gotten worse since Biden became president,” Rasmussen detailed, “but just 26 percent of Democrats agree.”

Hardly anybody in Biden’s party is going to admit their guy in the White House is responsible for an economic train wreck. Forty-one percent of Democrats insist the economy has improved under Biden, while only seven percent of Republicans agree.

Politico is reporting that a poll of suburban voters in battleground states done by the National Republican Senatorial Committee found 65 percent of survey respondents think excessive government spending is hurting the middle class. The story also said the nation’s economy is growing “at its slowest pace since the recovery began.”

Inflation is going to be an important issue in the 2022 mid-term elections, and the best gauge of that is in the skyrocketing cost of gasoline. As reported by CFL Thursday, the economy seems to revolve around fuel prices, and a gallon of gas is at least a dollar more expensive now than it was at this time last year under then-President Donald Trump. The more it costs to transport goods to retail outlets, the higher the cost of those goods become, whether food, clothing or other items.

As Politico put it, “Republicans plan to put economic issues front and center in the 2022 midterm campaigns by highlighting the soaring price of gasoline and some groceries and blaming Democrats for driving up inflation.”

Politico described it as “a double-barreled attack designed to zero in on the pain American consumers are feeling.” If Republicans recapture the House and/or Senate next year, it will stop Biden’s agenda in its tracks. That doesn’t just cover Biden’s economic agenda, but also such things as gun control and other social issues. With the Senate back in GOP control, it would also mean Biden would have to moderate his picks for federal court vacancies, including any that might occur on the U.S. Supreme Court.
