Poll shows Biden losing Democrats on economy

The latest poll from the far-left Associated Press (AP) shows Joe Biden losing support from Democrats due to his mismanagement of the economy.

“A month ago, 47% of Democrats described the economy as good,” the AP found. “In May, that slipped to 35%.”

There is even worse for Slow Joe:

The percentage of Democrats who say Biden’s policies have done more to help has fallen from 45% to 37%. A majority of Democrats say Biden’s policies have hurt or made no difference to the economy, with 18% saying they have hurt and 44% saying they have made no difference.

Overall, as my colleague John Carney pointed out on Friday, a jaw-dropping 78% of Americans now rate the US economy as “bad,” up from 70% in April.

What must especially trouble the White House is that the Democrats are rapidly losing faith in their own Democratic president. When this happens, when a sitting president loses his own party’s support, the bottom of his approval rating drops. So far, by appeasing the extremists who make up so much of his party, Biden had been able to keep his approval rating from plunging into his thirties. And that’s what a smart president does when he’s in trouble: whatever it takes to keep the base happy.

And usually it works.

It doesn’t work for Biden because he’s caught in a Catch-22 on the economy.

To appease his base, Biden had to shut down domestic oil production. But! His cancellation of domestic oil production has contributed to skyrocketing gas prices, which is one of the main reasons the economy is so bad. Moreover, domestic oil production is the only sure way to lower energy prices, which would reduce inflation. But! Biden can’t do that. So he and we and the economy are screwed.

To appease his base, Biden had to spend trillions and trillions of federal dollars. But! This is what caused inflation to explode, which hurt the economy, which is now hurting it with its base.

Biden’s problem is that the Democratic base rejects any proven method of creating economic prosperity. Less taxes? Verboten. Less regulation? Verboten. More energy? Verboten. Fiscal responsibility in DC? Verboten. More housing? Verboten. Locking up violent criminals? Verboten.

Had Biden had the moral courage and mental acumen to lead, he could have been another Bill Clinton, a Democrat who understood that a roaring economy forgives everything, even under oath. Clinton earned a 70% approval rating thanks to her booming economy. The far-left base wasn’t thrilled with Slick Willy’s pro-prosperity policies and willingness to do business with the GOP, but no one listens when times are good.

Right now, Americans are dealing with one shock after another. Gas prices have exploded with record after record over the past three weeks. Our monthly 401K statements make us cringe. What a hundred dollars bought you at the grocery store during the Trump era now costs closer to $150.

Children – in America! – can’t get enough formula milk – in America! – and end up hospitalized – in America! — and operated — in America!

No amount of happy talk about the unemployment rate, or this or that, can conceal the daily trauma of everyday life in Joe Biden’s bankrupt America.

And now even the Democrats are being forced to admit it, which means the bottom is about to fall from the presidency of His Fraudulency.
