President Biden has gone to great lengths to deflect blame for the economic downturn, including redefining the term “recession.” Nevertheless, a majority of likely voters place the blame squarely on the Democrats, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Wednesday.
The respondents were asked if they agreed with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statement late last month: “Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”
Overall, 59% of the 1,000 likely voters surveyed between July 28-31 said they agreed with McConnell’s statement while 35% disagreed.
Rasmussen noted that, as expected, 85% of Republicans at least somewhat agree, along with 57% of unaffiliated voters.
But 38% of Democratic voters also agree that their party ran the economy “straight into the ground.”
Biden and his administration have insisted that the country is not in a “recession,” despite the two consecutive quarters of negative growth, which is the commonly accepted definition.
But the poll found 62% believe the economy is in a recession, and 47% of Democrats say the same. And, looking ahead to the 2022 midterm elections in November, 91% overall see the economy and inflation as crucial issues.
Rasmussen pointed out that likely voters with incomes of more than $200,000 annually – who “often side with Democrats on cultural issues” – agree the economy will be central this fall.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!

Captain Obvious strikes again!
It is our own fault because we, Americans & illegals , continue to re-elect these same candidates over and over and over.
