A new poll shows most Americans are feeling the effects of inflation as the holiday season kicks in, and a majority of them blame President Joe Biden personally for the price hikes.
Seventy-seven percent of respondents said they were feeling a crisis. According to the poll, 57% of them hold Biden personally accountable.
When asked if Biden doing enough to fix the problems affecting them, only 18% of respondents said so.
Yahoo’s Andrew Romano noted, “These results partly explain why the president’s overall approval rating has steadily dropped to 43% in recent months while his disapproval rating That’s up to 52% – and why, in economic terms, Biden’s approval rating is even lower (40 percent).”
Thirty-seven per cent of respondents said higher prices were affecting them “a lot”, while 40 per cent said they were feeling “some impact”. 61% say they have been affected by “shortages of goods and services”.
Fifty-one percent of respondents told Yahoo/YouGov that they were worried they wouldn’t be able to buy what they needed during the holiday season, due to inflationary.
45% said they were worried, due to supply chain issues, that they wouldn’t be able to find what they were looking for.
