Majority blames Biden directly for inflation that negatively affects them

Most Americans say inflation affects them negatively and blame President Biden, according to a Yahoo News / YouGov poll released this week.

More than three-quarters of Americans, 77 percent, said inflation affects their lives, and a majority of all parties say the same. This includes 90% of Republicans, 79% of Independents and 69% of Democrats:

In addition to the nearly 8 in 10 Americans who now say inflation affects them personally (37% “a lot”; 40% “a little”), more than 6 in 10 (61%) say the same about “Shortages of goods and services” (17% “a lot”; 44% “a little”).

Moreover, 57%, overall, directly blame President Biden. Respondents also identified inflation as the “most important problem America faces”, even more so than the Chinese coronavirus.

These results partly explain why the president’s overall approval rating has steadily dropped to 43% in recent months while his disapproval rating has risen to 52% – and why, economically, Biden’s approval rating is even lower (40%).

Since last October, global prices have climbed 6.2% due to supply chain bottlenecks and skyrocketing demand for goods – the fastest annual pace in more than three decades.

The survey, conducted from November 17 to 19, 2021, among 1,696 adults, has a margin of error of +/- 2.6%.

“Bidenflation” has had a devastating effect and is reverberating across the country as it pushes well-known companies to dramatically increase their prices. Dollar Tree, for example, has increased its prices by 25%.

“We had a strong end to the quarter as buyers increasingly focus on value in this inflationary environment,” President and CEO Michael Witynski said in a statement:

Our Dollar Tree pricing tests have demonstrated broad consumer acceptance of the new price point and enthusiasm for the additional offers and extreme value that we will be able to deliver. As a result, we have started rolling out the price of $ 1.25 to all Dollar Tree stores nationwide.

Likewise, General Mills announced this month that it will increase the prices of a variety of products by about 20% in mid-January.

Biden’s RealClearPolitics (RCP) average is currently underwater, with 53.1% disapproval and 41.6% approval.
