Joe Biden continues to talk about how great the economy is and tries to take credit for it, but polls show Americans are not buying his song and dance.
Millions of Americans across the country are still struggling with higher prices for gas, food and other basic necessities.
You can’t just lie to people about how much money they have.
Biden Gets Little Economic Credit
President Joe Biden scores mediocre to poor on key aspects of the economy despite his recent touting what he calls “Bidenomics”. Only 3 in 10 Americans feel the country is doing a better economic recovery than the rest of the world since the pandemic. A recent Monmouth (“Mon-muth”) College Poll also found Congress and nearly all of its leadership continued to receive negative ratings.
Biden gets separate decisions on his handling of work and unemployment (47% agree and 48% disagree). He received a net negative rating for his handling of transport and energy infrastructure (43% for and 51% for against) and an even worse rating for his handling of inflation (34% for and 62% for against). More than 7 in 10 Democrats rate the president positively in this policy area and more than 8 in 10 Republicans rate him negatively. Consent among independents reached 41% for employment and unemployment, 37% for transport and energy infrastructure, and only 26% for inflation. These results are similar to Biden’s ratings for these three policy areas in a Monmouth poll taken last September.
“The president is touting ‘Bidenomics,’ but the public opinion needle hasn’t really moved. Americans don’t give him much credit when it comes to economics,” said Patrick Murray, director of the independent University of Monmouth Polling Institute.
Just look at this tone-deaf tweet:
Currently, the average real wage of American workers is higher than before the pandemic, with lower wages benefiting the most.

This is reality:
Since Biden took office, real wages have fallen 3%.

It doesn’t matter what Biden says. One could see what life was really like under this government.
