A new poll shows that Americans trust the Republican Party more than ever to handle the economy. This is not just a slight edge; we’re talking about the largest lead in the history of the poll, dating back over three decades. According to the NBC News survey, the GOP now holds a staggering 21-point lead over the Democrats when it comes to who Americans trust more to manage the financial system.
The poll, which surveyed 1,000 registered voters between September 15-19, revealed that almost half of Americans (49%) favor Republican economic policy, compared to a meager 28% who favor Democrats’ policies.
But the surprises don’t stop there. The Republicans are outpacing the Democrats by considerable margins on a slew of critical issues: border security (50% for Republicans-20% for Democrats), crime (46%-20%), immigration (45%-27%), and protecting constitutional rights (43%-35%). In contrast, the Dems only manage to hold onto their leads in education, coronavirus, abortion, and healthcare.
This shocking data has left the Biden administration scrambling. Despite their enthusiastic efforts to sell “Bidenomics” to the American public, it seems clear that the people aren’t buying it. A Washington Post-ABC News poll published recently shows that Americans are overwhelmingly pessimistic about the state of the U.S. economy, with nearly three-quarters rating it as “not so good” or “poor.”
As inflation continues to soar above the Federal Reserve’s 2% target, the Biden administration’s optimistic economic message is falling flat. Fed chairman Jerome Powell has even stated that the Federal Reserve board may not be done hiking interest rates.
These alarming figures are a stark reminder of the growing disconnect between the Biden administration and the American public. It appears that the White House’s rosy economic promises are failing to resonate with the people, who are instead placing their trust in the GOP’s more conservative economic policies.
In a time of economic uncertainty and growing public discontent, this poll serves as an urgent wake-up call for the Democratic Party. If they fail to address these concerns and regain public trust, they may find themselves losing even more ground to the GOP in the coming months.
The winds of change are blowing, and it seems that they’re pushing the American public towards the Republican Party. The Democrats would do well to pay attention – or risk being left behind.
