The sense of panic within the Democrat Party about Joe Biden grows by the day.
One fear is driving Democrats’ anxiety.
Joe Biden saw a terrible poll that made all Democrats relive this brutal memory.
The economy is always the number one issue for voters.
Heading into the 2022 midterms Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s disastrous economic policies by historic margins.
A new CNN poll found Joe Biden’s approval rating on the economy is nine points underwater.
The average of all polls by CNN found Joe Biden underwater on the economy by 13 points.
“The poll found that Biden holds a 45% approval rating and a 54% disapproval rating among registered voters on the economy, down from a 51% approval rating in August and September. The survey’s results add up to an overall -9 point net approval rating, while the average of all polls taken in December gives the president -13 points for his economic performance,” The Daily Caller reported.
Biden’s negative rating on the economy is the worst for any president in history, topping the previous record of disapproval set by Jimmy Carter.
“Former President Jimmy Carter, like Biden, struggled to deal with inflation and economic issues pertaining to American citizens in the late 1970s, CNN reported. The former president had a higher economic approval rating than Biden at the end of his year in office, with a -8 net approval in a January 1878 CBS News/New York Times poll,” The Daily Caller also reported.
No president wants to find themselves compared to Jimmy Carter.
For many Americans Carter stands as the poster child for American futility and impotence that set in during the 1970s as Carter sat back passively accepted the malaise of high inflation and failed to secure the release of American hostages seized by the Islamic government in Iran.
In 1977 inflation under Jimmy Carter sat at 6.5 percent.
Ever since, inflation under Carter stood as the mark of futility that no president ever wanted to approach.
However, the latest government report found inflation under Joe Biden rising at 6.8 percent year over year.
Inflation under Jimmy Carter led to the Ronald Reagan revolution and the historic 1980 landslide that realigned American politics.
Reagan’s victory set the terms of debate in America where big government politicians found themselves on the defensive as Ronald Reagan rallied Americans to his conservative agenda of tax cuts, unleashing American entrepreneurism and rebuilding the American military to win the Cold War and vanquish the Communist Soviet menace.
Americans rejecting Joe Biden’s trillion-dollar socialist spending spree as driving inflation is the underlying cause of Biden’s dangerously low poll numbers on the economy.
Jimmy Carter’s malaise ushered in the Ronald Reagan presidency.
Democrats fear that Joe Biden tanking the American economy will lead to a conservative landslide in 2024 on par with the Reagan rout of Carter in 1980.
