A recent poll found that 84 percent of voters say higher costs and inflation are affecting their lives while 50 percent believe that the president’s touted “Bidenomics” have been “bad” or “very bad” for the US economy, The Washington Examiner reported.
Of the 84 percent whose lives have been affected by inflation and rising consumer costs, 46 said they struggle to make ends meet.
The poll conducted by Trump pollster McLaughlin & Associates and shared with Secrets, suggests that the economy continues to be Joe Biden’s weakness.
A recent analysis from Senate Republicans on the Joint Economic Committee found that the typical US household must spend an additional $11,434 a year to have the same standard of living that they did before January 2021 when Biden took office, CBS News reported.
The analysis used government data like the Consumer Price Index and Consumer Expenditure Survey to determine the impact of inflation in each US state. The data reveals that despite the rate of inflation slowing, Americans continue to face financial pressure.
Americans continue to say they have not felt any improvement in their economic situation, despite the low unemployment rate, increased wages, and some strengthening economic measures.
Unsurprisingly, Trump’s pollster’s latest survey also has Donald Trump beating Joe Biden in a hypothetical head-to-head General Election match-up, 49 percent to 43 percent.
The McLaughlin survey also gauged voter reaction to Donald Trump’s ongoing legal problems.
According to the poll, 67 percent of respondents said the indictments against Trump were politically motivated and 61 percent think President Biden played some role in the indictments. Another 61 percent believe the Justice Department should back off on pursuing Trump and let voters decide if he should be elected.
John McLaughlin, who conducts surveys for the Trump campaign, told Secrets that Trump’s campaign strategy of running an “issue-centered campaign” against Joe Biden’s “failed policies” was “working perfectly.”
