Poll shows most of the blame for price inflation falls on Biden

The recent inflationary surge in pricing for consumer goods and services is hitting Americans in their wallets — the inevitable consequence of dumping trillions of taxpayer dollars into the economy in response to the pandemic. The only question is, who is most to blame for the spiking costs?

A recent poll asked that question and found that a significant and bipartisan plurality of likely voters pointed the finger of blame directly at President Joe Biden, the Washington Examiner reported.

Less than half as many blamed former President Donald Trump for the current inflation, with nearly as many blaming the current Congress while fewer still blamed the previous Congress.

Biden is “most responsible” for inflation

The poll, conducted by the Trafalgar Group in conjunction with Convention of States Action, surveyed 1,073 likely voters nationwide between June 3-7 with a margin of error of 2.99%.

Overall, 39% held Biden “most responsible” for the inflation, followed by 17.7% for Trump, 14.4% for the current Congress, 10.9% for the previous Congress, and 17.9% who were unsure.

There was, of course, a partisan breakdown in the responses, but even among Democratic voters, while 27.3% blamed Trump for the inflation, 21.5% of Biden’s own voters held him “most responsible,” followed by 14.6% for the current Congress, 13.6% for the previous Congress, and 23% who didn’t know.

The responses were much more lopsided for Republicans, as 64.3% of GOP voters blamed Biden compared to 11.6% who blamed the current Congress, 6% who blamed Trump, 5.2% for the prior Congress, and 12.9% who weren’t sure who to blame.

Responses evened out a bit more for independent or “no-party” voters, although the blame was still heavily tilted toward Biden, with 35.5% of those unaffiliated voters blaming the current president, 17.5 pointing to the current Congress, 16.9% blaming Trump, 13.8% blaming the last Congress, and 16.3% who didn’t know.

Media narratives busted

In a press release accompanying those poll results, Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler said, “On a wide range of issues that hit home for and impact everyday Americans — from the border, to COVID-19 policy, to inflation — current leadership in Washington is not only getting it wrong, they’re focused on issues that only DC elites care about. And DC doesn’t pay the price, we do.”

“We’re continuing our work in states across America to advance agenda items that help real people solve real problems,” he added. “The swamp has demonstrated a consistent inability to care about making our lives better, which is why we have to increase the focus on taking strong leadership in our own backyards.”

As evidenced by those poll results, many Democrats — and therefore much of the media — have sought to divert responsibility for the current surging prices away from Biden by either casting blame on Trump or the previous Congress or even downplaying the inflation altogether.

Newsbusters aptly noted, however, that these poll results show how futile those media efforts are to protect Biden, and to a lesser extent the current Democratic-controlled Congress, from the real-world consequences of their actions.

  9. Don’t blame Biden. He is senile and doesn’t know which end is up
    Biden is president in title only. The puppetmaster pulling his strings
    is the traitorous, hate-America Obama.

  10. Don’t blame Biden?! That a-hole had no business even running for president in the first place! He’s not smart enough to collect my trash! He had to know that the election was being rigged for him, and if the man had any character, which he does not, he would not have accepted the presidency like that!

    1. He needs to be run out of office. Is that Biden we are seeing or a double? Who is REALLY running the country? Obama? CCP?
