Biden Remains Underwater on Economy

By Jerry McConway, updated on September 5, 2023

I think it is safe to say that in terms of perception, Bidenomics is an epic failure.

Americans are not buying what Joe is selling these days, but he continues to try to tell them this is working.

This is an issue that is hitting people hard, and it is reflected in polling, where Biden is and has been underwater virtually from his first day in office.

Talking Points…

  • Biden’s economic number
  • What Biden is saying
  • Why Americans don’t believe him
  • My Two Cents…

The Numbers

The latest Wall Street Journal poll did not have any good news for Joe Biden.

The new numbers for the economy came in at 37 percent approval for Joe, with 59 percent saying they disapprove of the economy under Biden.

That leaves only four percent that have not made up their minds.

On inflation, a whopping 63 percent disapprove of Biden’s record.

What Joe is Saying

Biden recently discussed the August jobs report, stating:

“[It] is now in one of the strongest job-creating periods in our history.

“It wasn’t that long ago that America was losing jobs.

“In fact, my predecessor was one of only two presidents in history who entered his presidency and left with fewer jobs than when he entered.”

Why Doesn’t Anyone Believe Biden?

That is actually an easy answer.

If we just look at the last statement made by Biden, Americans can see that he is leaving out obvious facts.

For instance, he hammers Trump on leaving office in the red when it comes to jobs, but he fails to mention the fact the entire country was shut down, save a few exceptions, because of COVID at the time.

It is gaslighting at its finest, and Americans are sick and tired of it.

Biden also keeps pushing debunked narratives, such as creating 12 million jobs, when in reality, these were jobs that were coming back from COVID, not newly created jobs.

Every word out of this man’s mouth is a lie, and people are just sick and tired of it.

My Two Cents…

Joe Biden’s act has worn thin because most of us measure the success of the economy by our bank accounts.

I know mine has been sliding backward for months, and then it was obliterated by a medical procedure that I had to have done.

I know from talking to friends and people online, that most people are facing similar situations, terrified that an emergency will drain their account and they will be left living from paycheck to paycheck (the ones that are not already doing so).

To that point, I just read a report that more than 60 percent of Americans are now living from paycheck to paycheck, a significant rise from when Trump was in office, and people were finally building up their savings.

You cannot sit there and tell people that things are getting better when gasoline is now starting to approach $3.50, well on its way up to $4.00. In California, the average price is now $5.11.

Groceries remain high, partly because of the high price of gasoline. When you get two small bags of groceries delivered and you see a $50 check, well, you just know that Biden is lying.

His economic plan is a complete and utter disaster, but he will continue to say differently, believing that if he says it enough, people will start to fall in line.

Joe thinks we are stupid, but not even Democrats are buying his narrative now.
