According to the Media, It's Unfair for Biden's Polling to Reflect Economic Woes

It’s no secret that polling for Joe Biden isn’t looking good, especially when it comes to the economy. Americans aren’t happy with their bank accounts or their 401ks, and they’re pinning the blame on the president.

A new CNN poll shows that only 25% of Americans approve of Biden’s handling of inflation, while a mere 30% approve of his handling of the economy in general. Those numbers are blistering, but CNN thinks it’s unfair for people to blame Biden for the country’s economic troubles.

Stephen Collinson begins his analysis by stating the obvious.

“The plunge in confidence in Biden’s leadership may also reflect his administration’s blasé assurances last year that inflation was not a long-term concern, contradicting warnings of experts like former Democratic Treasury Secretary Larry Summers,” he writes.

Ya think? Sure, the administration’s tone-deafness about the seriousness of inflation doesn’t help Biden’s polling, but the White House’s policies when it comes to a number of things that didn’t help economic issues — shutting down domestic oil production, taking months to address the baby formula shortage, sitting on its hands through a supply chain crisis, just to name a few — are what voters really notice.

But Collinson points out that, you guys, it’s totally not Biden’s fault. So leave him alone!

“Whatever happened in the past, it’s clear that until Biden can convince the country he has inflation under control, his political fortunes are not likely to improve,” Collinson laments. “But the most daunting takeaway of the poll for Biden and Democrats, less than four months before the midterm elections, is that he has limited power to control the factor that could most dictate their fates.” Read the full article HERE.
