CV NEWS FEED // A new Economist / YouGov found that a majority of Americans believe the U.S. is already in the midst of a recession, but President Joe Biden on Monday continued to tout the state of the economy ahead of the coming midterm elections.
Fifty-five percent of respondents to the poll said the U.S. economy is currently in recession, while 24% said they were not sure.
“Eighty-three percent of Americans describe the state of the economy as poor or not so good, a separate poll from the Wall Street Journal/Norc showed Monday,” Breitbart News reported:
A third poll—this time by ABC/ISPOS—showed that 61 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy, 71 percent disapprove of his handling of inflation, and 72 percent disapprove of his handling of gas prices.
Nonetheless on Monday, President Biden tweeted out a message that stood in stark contrast to current public sentiment. “At the time I took office about 16 months ago, the economy had stalled and COVID was out of control,” Biden wrote. “Today, thanks to the economic plan and the vaccination plan that my Administration put into action, America has achieved the most robust recovery in modern history.”
