I wrote earlier about the WaPo/ABC poll that had former President Donald Trump up by ten points over Joe Biden.
Some think it might be an outlier, given most of the other polls show a tighter race.
But if you listen to the people who ABC spoke to, it might not be such a surprise when you hear their frustration over the economy, one of the main drivers of why Biden did so badly in the poll. I wanted to focus a little on just how terrible those numbers are.
“Americans overwhelmingly say they are not feeling good about the economy,” ABC’s Rick Klein observes, and Joe Biden “is to blame.” Just 30 percent say they approve, while 64 percent disapprove — what ABC called “a career low.”
They also slammed the high gas prices. The national average hit $3.88 this week, the highest number this summer. Eighty-seven percent of Americans have a negative opinion of energy prices under Joe Biden.
You can’t find 87 percent to agree on anything normally, but they do here. That shows you just how bad it is.
You can’t tell Americans how well you’re doing and make up nice fanciful things about Bidenomics when people know how much of a hit their wallets have taken under Joe Biden from the huge rise in gas price and food prices. And when you do, they trust you even less. That’s what has been going on with the president. They think not only doesn’t he know what he’s doing but also that he doesn’t care.
As ABC notes, “Americans aren’t buying it.”
