According to a Rasmussen Reports poll published this week, a majority of the likely voters think that the Demos are responsible for bringing the United States into recession.
Mitch McConnell claimed in late July that “Dems inherited an economy that was ready for an amazing comeback, and quickly ran it right into the ground.” According to a poll of 1,000 likely voters conducted between July 28 and 31, 59% agreed with McConnell’s assessment, while 35 percent disagreed. The margin level of confidence is 95 percent.
According to the poll, “As may be expected, 85% of Republicans agree that Dems ‘ran the economy straight into the ground,’” as well as a majority (57%) of independents. However, even 38% of the Democratic voters are agreeing with the statement from McConnell, including 23% that Strongly Agree.
Even as the Biden Administration and its Big Tech allies tried to redefine the term, nearly two-thirds of likely voters (62 percent) believe that America’s economy is in a recession. Only 23% of respondents believe that the US economy isn’t in a recession, while 15% are undecided.
With almost half (47%) of Dems believing the economy is in recession, Joe Biden’s recession denial has done little to calm anxiety among his supporters. However, Biden’s most loyal fans are the most likely to think there isn’t a depression (58 percent). It’s not surprising, Republicans (83%) and those that strongly disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance (89%) are more inclined to believe there is one. Independent voters were more likely to believe it, with 57% agreeing.
According to the survey, 91 percent of respondents believe inflation and the economy will be important during the 2022 congressional elections. When asked whether they agree with McConnell’s criticism of Democrats, 61 percent “strongly agree.”
The economy will take precedence in the 2020 election, according to respondents in the upper brackets (annual income of more than $200,000), even though they “usually side with Dems on cultural issues” according to Rasmussen Reports. Upper-income voters are also more likely to agree that “Democrats ran the economy straight into the ground.”
