According to a new report from Yahoo News ‘President Biden and the Democratic Party face no shortage of challenges heading into the 2022 midterm elections. But inflation is by far the most formidable — and now, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll, Americans say that Republicans (31%) rather than Democrats (26%) can do a better job of “fixing” it’
Per the report:
The survey of 1,605 U.S. adults, which was conducted from April 19 to 22, found that 39% select either inflation (33%) or gas prices (6%) as the biggest problem facing America today. No other issue comes close; in fact, only one — climate change (11%) — cracks the 10% mark.”
And while Republicans (56%) are much more likely than Democrats (26%) or independents (43%) to rank inflation or gas prices as America’s No. 1 problem, even Democrats now cite rising consumer costs as a bigger dilemma than climate change (19%) or health care (13%).
This is terrible news for Biden for several reasons. First, inflation can be difficult — or even disastrous — for policymakers to tackle; perhaps reflecting that conundrum, far more respondents (42%) say that “no one” can fix inflation (17%) or that they’re “not sure” (25%) than say either party can tame the problem.
At the same time, however, Americans want action, and just 21% of them — including just 41% of Democrats and 43% of 2020 Biden voters — think the president is “doing enough to address inflation.” And while nearly 4 in 10 select inflation or gas prices from a list of 10 issues as the biggest problem facing America, only 15% select inflation (9%) or gas prices (6%) as the issue they believe Biden focuses on the most. More say the president focuses primarily on COVID-19 (16%).
In contrast, 18% of Americans pick either inflation (14%) or gas prices (4%) as the problem Republicans in Congress focus on most.
