Democrats were hoping that the recent Supreme Court decisions would give them a boost.
They got bad news on all fronts.
Not only is inflation still the number one concern for voters, but the abortion ruling by the Supreme Court did not even move the needle.
Actually, the needle did move, but it moved the wrong way.
The latest Gallup Poll covered a lot of ground, and all of it was bad news for this administration.
Since 1975, Gallup has NEVER recorded a “confidence” level in an Oval Office occupant as low as Joe Biden.
In the latest poll, he is a pathetic 23 percent.
Gallup stated, “The largest declines in confidence are 11 percentage points for the Supreme Court — as reported in late June before the court issued controversial rulings on gun laws and abortion — and 15 points for the presidency, matching the 15-point drop in President Joe Biden’s job approval rating since the last confidence survey in June 2021.
“All three party groups are much less confident in the presidency than they were a year ago, showing declines of at least 10 points.”
This is not a one-poll problem for Biden, either.
The most recent Monmouth University poll asked responders to rank their current concerns.
In order, their responses were:
- Inflation (33 percent)
- Gas prices (15 percent)
- Economy (9 percent)
- Everyday bills and groceries (6 percent)
- Abortion (5 percent)
If the 68 percent of the responses noted above, 92.6 percent of those are all financial concerns, so I think we can see where people’s heads are right now.
A whopping 40 percent of respondents replied that they were “struggling to remain where they are financially.”
This goes entirely against the narrative that Biden is pushing.
Not only that, but Joe’s beach getaways and Pelosi living up the high life in Italy over the holiday weekend is undoubtedly not going to play well with those folks.
To make matters worse, economic growth has virtually halted, with some projections of an outright recession right around the corner.
The final nail in the coffin is investor panic, which is crushing 401k’s right now.
I personally know a half-dozen people that are going back to work after having retired because their retirement accounts have been hit so hard.
I know another handful that are putting off retirement for at least two years in the hopes their accounts can recover before they need the money.
I think it is safe to say that Biden’s goose, and that of Democrats, is cooked.
