Americans Sound Off On #1 Reason Biden Isn’t Right For The US
(TargetLiberty.org) – Experts are growing increasingly more concerned about the possibility of the US entering a recession. The Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates to get inflation under control this year caused the markets to go wild. President Joe Biden’s administration has also not put any policies in place to help bring prices down either.
Americans are the ones suffering the results of the global inflation crisis. They’re paying more for almost everything, from housing to gas to medical care to food. It seems as though they can’t catch a break and they’re blaming the federal government.
Economy In Trouble
According to a Monmouth University Poll, the majority of Americans believe the federal government and President Joe Biden are hurting their families. The poll found 42% of respondents are having a hard time staying in their current financial position. In one year, the number of people who said they were struggling increased from 24% to 42%. Almost half of those polled, or 44%, said gas prices or inflation were their biggest concerns.
A majority of respondents, 57%, said the federal government has hurt their families and 54% don’t believe Biden’s policies are helping the middle class. Further, 52% think the president’s policies have not benefited poor people in any way, that’s an increase from 29% in July 2021.
Biden’s Approval Numbers
Biden’s job approval ratings continue to tank. Only 36% of those polled said he’s doing a good job, while 58% disapprove of his job performance. Only 10% of the people polled said America is heading in the right direction; 88% said it’s on the wrong track. It’s an all-time low for that particular question. The last time so many people were upset with the direction the country was headed was in 2013, when only 18% responded positively. The next year, Republicans took control of the Senate.
Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray said the impact of inflation is really hurting families and “Americans are blaming Washington for their current pain.”
In November, Americans will head to the polls to decide which party will control Congress. Currently, Republicans are on track to win the House and possibly the Senate. The Democratic Party was already at a disadvantage because the party in the White House generally loses in the midterms, but Biden’s approval ratings are making it much worse.
If Americans don’t trust the president or they believe he’s at fault for the current state of the economy, it’s entirely possible they might decide they need to start fresh with a new Congress.
