In a startling new poll 85% of Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction under President Joe Biden.
In a survey conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs, 92% of Republicans are upset with the near economic future, and 78% of Democrats feel the same way.
To achieve these type of numbers from both sides of the aisle is unprecedented in modern politics. You can’t get 85% of Americans to agree on anything usually.
With inflation and gas prices rocking the economy, adults across the board view the direction of the economy in a negative light. Eighty-one percent of adults perceive the economy as poor. Broken down by party, 67% of Democrats have this view, while 90% of Republicans do.
These numbers are significantly up from what the poll found last year, when only 37% of Democrats and 68% of Republicans felt negative about the economy.
In the new survey, 60% overall said they disapprove of Biden’s job as president, and 39% said they approve. Among independents, 73% said they disapprove of Biden’s performance.
In other news over this Fourth of July holiday weekend, the total cost for an Independence Day BBQ is up $10 from 2021. That’s a 17 percent hike in cookout prices thanks to government-induced inflation ,according to a new report from the American Farm Bureau Federation.
In total, the cost is about $69.68 for a 10-person celebration that includes grilling essentials such as “cheeseburgers, pork chops, chicken breasts, homemade potato salad, strawberries, and ice cream.”
Lucky for some who are hosting BBQs over the weekend, many people who you invite will not be able to attend because of high gas prices.
Have a safe and happy holiday this weekend and remember this story in early November.
