The vast majority of voters say the rising cost of gas is a “serious” problem in President Biden’s America, mere months ahead of the midterm elections, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Tuesday found.
Rising gas prices have emerged as a top voter issue heading into the midterms, which does not bode well for President Biden and Democrats, both of whom have continued to deflect, constantly blaming others for the current state of affairs in the country.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in April, for example, tied rising gas prices to “Russia’s unprovoked, vicious, nasty, bitter, invasion of Ukraine.”
That, he said, “has led to higher prices at the pump,” later blaming “market manipulation and price gouging” at the hands of big oil companies. Speaking at the same press conference, 82-year-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) also refused to accept blame.
