A majority of Americans have been personally affected by the Biden administration’s supply chain crisis, a new poll from Convention of States Action and The Trafalgar Group indicates.
Overall, 53.7 percent of the more than 1,000 Americans surveyed in the October poll said they have been personally hindered by supply chain shortages in the United States. The number jumps even higher to 67.7 percent among Republican respondents. While only 42.4 percent of Democrats said they noticed and have been affected by the supply chain crisis, 50.6 percent of independents are sure they have “personally encountered delays or shortages.”
These numbers only add to the rising frustration among Americans over skyrocketing inflation and rampant staffing shortages fueled by government handouts under President Joe Biden.
“We wanted to learn if headlines about the growing supply chain crisis match the everyday reality of Americans in their personal lives. These numbers reveal that, yes, Americans are already experiencing shortages and delays. When you add inflation into the mix, consumers are also paying more for products and have less money to spend,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action, in a statement. “In this economic environment, it’s hard to believe that President Biden continues to be hell bent on aggressively making America less energy independent and thus raising energy prices, pushing for a massive spending bill that will raise taxes on overburdened taxpayers, and pursuing mandates that are putting people out of work. Unfortunately, Washington, DC now represents the single greatest threat to the well-being of American families.”
While families grow increasingly frustrated with their inability to obtain goods and maybe even Christmas presents on time, the Biden administration is making a mockery of their concerns.
Biden trivialized the rising cost of a cup of coffee (which is actually closer to $3.77 a cup on average) in a tweet redirecting the focus on his affinity for “taxing the rich.”
“Here’s the deal: If you spent $3 on your coffee this morning, that’s more than what 55 major corporations paid in taxes in recent years,” Biden wrote. “It’s wrong — and it’s got to change.”

One day earlier, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki joked that the supply chain issues in the U.S. are “the tragedy of the treadmill that’s delayed.”
