Recent polling shows more than 8 out of 10 voters see rising inflation as their main election concern, with the majority blaming President Joe Biden’s actions for making the economy worse in less than two years in office. According to the most recent Rasmussen Reports survey, rising costs were the most critical problem, receiving 84% of responses, including 77% of Democrats who believe it to be a crucial issue.
According to the Washington Examiner, the survey was issued shortly after new data was released contradicting statements by the Biden administration claiming inflation was under control. Meanwhile, prices continue to rise faster and higher than the White House anticipated.
The Rasmussen poll showed that most Americans don’t believe Biden or his staff, with 60% of respondents blaming the president’s actions for “increased inflation.” Only 13% of people think the White House has been successful in bringing inflation down. The surveyed electorate is unlikely to change their thoughts before the election, with 89% of respondents indicating they were “somewhat to very concerned” about inflation. Additionally, Rasmussen’s data revealed that “majorities of all racial groups — 64% of whites, 60% of black voters, and 66% of other minorities — are very concerned about inflation.”
