The Biden administration is so afraid of being blamed for the state of the economy that they are trying to redefine the word ‘recession’ but it’s clearly not working.
According to a new poll from Rasmussen, voters blame Joe Biden and the Democrats for the current state of the economy and for ‘running it into the ground.’
This is a horrible position for the Democrats to find themselves in just a few months before the 2022 midterms.
Poll: Most Voters Think Democrats Ran Economy ‘Straight Into the Ground’
A majority of likely voters believe Democrats are responsible for plunging the United States into a recession, a Rasmussen Reports poll released on Wednesday found.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said in late July that “Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.” Out of 1,000 likely voters surveyed between July 28-31, 59 percent say they agree with McConnell’s statement and 35 percent disagree. The margin of sampling error is ± 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
“As might be expected, 85 percent of Republicans at least somewhat agree that Democrats “ran [the economy] straight into the ground,” as do a majority (57 percent) of unaffiliated voters. However, even 38% of Democratic voters agree with the quote from McConnell, including 23% who Strongly Agree,” according to the poll report.
Most likely voters (62 percent) think the United States economy is in a recession, even as the White House and its Big Tech allies attempt to redefine the term. Less than a quarter (23 percent) believe the United States economy is not in a recession, and 15 percent are unsure.
President Joe Biden’s recession denial has done little to quell concern in his own party, with nearly half (47 percent) of Democrats also saying they believe the economy is in a recession.
To make matters worse for Democrats, inflation and the economy are still the top concerns of voters, along with gas prices.
The country is ready for some much-needed change.
