Democrats know they face a really bad midterm election cycle. A party’s chances at elections rest on how the public perceives its success. If the country is doing well, many voters will believe it is because of who’s in charge. If the country is suffering, guess who also gets the blame?
America is in a terrible state, as the economy falters, gas prices soar, the board is overrun, and inflation skyrockets. There is war breaking out overseas, our allies mock us, and we can’t even get ships to dock at port. Meanwhile, Democrats are wasting time complaining about Roe v. Wade.
How do you think Democrats are going to fair this fall? If this poll tells us anything, it won’t be good.
Three-fourths of Americans say the country is on the wrong track, according to a new poll.
The NBC News poll of 1,000 U.S. adults, conducted between May 5-7, found that 75% of Americans said the country was “off on the wrong track,” while just 16% said the United States was “headed in the right direction.”
NBC noted that the poll is the fourth consecutive survey where the “wrong track” figure was above 70 percent and only the fifth time in 34 years that the “wrong track” number reached 75%. The last time it was that high was during the Great Recession in 2008, followed by the 2013 government shutdown. [Source: Daily Wire]
Democrats can try to spin what’s going on as much as they can. But you can’t get out of numbers like this. A staggering 75% of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. Only 16% think it is going well. The last time it was this bad was during the recession of 2008—when voters burned George W by voting for Obama.
The other time was 2013 when Obama’s incompetence led to a prolonged government shutdown.
There is really no recovering from numbers like this. Unless Democrats can magically end inflation, lower gas prices by $2/gallon, bring back baby formula and close the border. But most of the problems continue to hurt Americans because neither Biden nor his party are willing to reverse damaging policies.
They are almost entirely consumed with trying to control the narrative. But you can control the narrative all you want. All that people see are record-high prices for bacon and empty shelves where there should be food for babies. Meanwhile, working parents can’t even put gas in their cars, thanks to ridiculous prices.
Do I have to remind you that America is sitting on some of the richest natural resources in the world? Yet Biden’s “environmental policies” are preventing us from harvesting those resources to make energy safe and affordable (like we had under Trump).
Numbers like this can’t get much worse. A 75% rating is near as close to 100% as you’d get in a poll like this. And Biden has no intention of turning this mess around.
