(RightIsRight.co) – The vast majority of Americans disapprove of President Joe Biden’s anti-inflation and economic policies, a new CNN poll has revealed.
The survey found that only 32% of American voters approve of how Biden has handled inflation.
It is inflation that is the top issue in every battleground state for the US Senate in the upcoming midterm elections, Breitbart News points out in a report.
According to the CNN poll, only 26% of Americans consider the national economy to have improved on Biden’s watch.
Another 24% said the president’s economic policies had had no impact, while half of all voters believe they had made the economy worse than before Biden entered the White House.
More than two-thirds of American voters negatively view the ruling Democrats’ attempts to do something about the sky-high inflation or the slowing economy.
Thus, 72% said the Democrats, who have been in charge of the executive branch and have had slim majorities in both chambers of the US Congress, aren’t doing enough to prevent the economy from sliding into a recession.
Even more respondents – 73% – declared that the Democrats’ efforts to fight inflation are insufficient.
The CNN survey sampled 1,982 Americans in phone or live interviews between October 3 and October 5. The poll has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.
A recent estimate by Moody’s says that inflation, which is “driven by the manufactured energy crises,” is going to cost American workers an average of $5,520 in 2022.
Another recent study by the Heritage Foundation estimated that Americans’ annual income had lost $4,200 since Joe Biden was sworn into office more than 20 months ago.
The Breitbart report emphasized that the energy crisis in the United States has been caused by “Biden’s own policies,” including his campaign trail vow to cut oil drilling.
Thus, in less than two years, the Biden administration has canceled the Keystone pipeline, stopped drilling on public lands, and shot up the drilling costs under private or public financing.
With only 27 days to go before the midterms, the “struggling economy” is now the No. 1 issue in US Senate races in critically important states: Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
To keep their majority in the Senate, the Democrats would need to win North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
Alternatively, they would have to prevent the Republicans from winning even one of five currently held Democrat seats: Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, or Washington State.
The GOP is presently leading or tied in Florida, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The Democrats have a slight lead in Arizona, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania.
Only 32 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s handling of inflation, the top midterm issue in nearly every Senate battleground state, a CNN poll found Wednesday. https://t.co/HQID4mbzFU
