Joe Biden can’t get any breaks from “likely voters” who—according to a new Rasmussen survey released Monday—blame the president’s policies for increased inflation.
Sixty-four percent of likely voters “believe the policies of Biden’s administration have increased inflation, while only eight percent (8%) think Biden’s policies have reduced inflation,” Rasmussen reported. “Another 25% say the Biden administration’s policies have not made much difference in inflation.”
With the 2022 mid-term elections just over seven months away, Rasmussen is also reporting that 87 percent of voters think inflation will be an important issue in this fall’s campaign. Inflation reached 7.9 percent last month, the highest percentage in 40 years, and Rasmussen says “some analysts expect prices will continue to rise, driven in large part by soaring energy costs.”
When Biden took office, gasoline was down in the $2.50-per-gallon range and the country was energy independent. But his “green new deal” policies have been likened to turning off the pump, and now the United States has to depend upon foreign oil from countries that are not friendly to the U.S., or in the case of the Middle East, they don’t like Biden.
The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on March 9-10, 2022 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
Naturally, Democrats are less likely to blame the president. Rasmussen noted, “Only 42% of Democratic voters believe the Biden administration’s policies have increased inflation, but solid majorities of both Republicans (87%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (64%) say Biden’s policies increased inflation.”
Couple that with Biden’s continued poor standing in the job performance rating of the Daily Presidential Tracking Poll and the Delaware Democrat has a problem.
The latest poll number has Biden with 40 percent approving of his job performance and 58 percent not approving. This includes 21 percent who “strongly approve” and 49 percent who “strongly disapprove.” This gives Biden a minus-28 rating in the Presidential Approval Index.
According to Rasmussen, “Older voters are more likely than those under 40 to say Biden’s policies have increased inflation, and older voters are also more likely to say inflation will be a Very Important issue in November.”
