Americans know the country is in trouble, which is why President Joe Biden and his Democrat allies are doing everything they can to distract voters from the crises plaguing America with the hope that it will save them from getting stripped from the halls of power in the upcoming midterm elections.
A new poll from Harvard-Harris found that, despite the left’s best attempts to focus voters on issues such as their extremist abortion and climate agendas, Americans care more about the economy, the border crisis, and crime.
Thirty-seven percent of voters say inflation and price increases are the biggest issues facing the country today. Right behind that is the economy and jobs, which 29 percent of voters think is a No. 1 problem. Approximately 23 percent of voters say immigration is at the front of their minds, while another 18 percent said crime and drug issues are most important. And considering that pollsters typically frame these surveys to shape public opinion in favor of Democrats, that these issues still emerged as voters’ top four concerns shows how important they are.
Meanwhile, only 17 percent of voters cited vague “women’s rights” as an important issue, and a mere 5 percent of voters said the same about foreign policy. That, however, hasn’t stopped Biden from focusing on inflation overseas and pretty much anything else except inflation at home.
While regular Americans struggle to pay bills, fill their gas tanks, and take their families out for ice cream on occasion, Biden, nibbling on a double dip of chocolate chip in a waffle cone, lied in a Baskin-Robbins in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday that the flailing U.S. economy is “strong as hell.” The president also denied having any concerns about the value of the U.S. dollar in our heavily inflated economy, something 9 in 10 voters say they worry about.
“I’m concerned about the rest of the world,” Biden said to the gaggle of reporters watching him eat. “Inflation is worldwide. It’s worse off than it is in the United States. So the problem is the lack of economic growth and sound policy in other countries, not so much ours.”
Americans’ top priorities (the economy, immigration, and crime) haven’t changed much since polling for the midterms first began. In fact, more and more voters, currently two-thirds, say the country under a Democrat-controlled White House and Congress is on the wrong track.
Yet the Biden administration and Democrats on the campaign trail have not only failed to address any of voters’ biggest worries but they are doing everything they can to use other problems as distractions, such as hyperventilating over Ukraine and threatening nuclear war with Russia, or capitalizing on the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision. Despite the deeply unpopular nature of Democrats’ unregulated, on-demand abortion extremism, the left has teamed up with the corporate media to make abortion their top priority going into the midterms. That’s why even vulnerable candidates have committed millions of dollars and time to promote the unrestricted killing of unborn babies through all nine months of pregnancy without any scrutiny from major media outlets.
Similarly, the Biden administration has sought to cover up the nation’s economic woes and Congress’s expensive and bloated bills by directing the press’s fawning attention to the global “climate emergency.” Instead of working to curb inflationary spending, acknowledge there is a recession, and address the disastrous border crisis, Biden has used his executive authority to declare that “climate change is a clear and present danger to the United States.”
While Republicans capitalize on the top issues facing Americans, several Democrat candidates have followed in Biden’s footsteps in declaring that “climate change is the greatest threat facing our country and our world.”
All across the country, blue candidates have shirked debates and questions about their role in exacerbating the current crises. Some, such as Sen. Ron Johnson’s challenger Mandela Barnes, have gone so far as to try covering up their connections to the harmful policies that frustrate constituents.
With their eager allies in the corporate press, Democrats have refused to take responsibility and instead tried to convince voters that ending preborn human lives, funneling tens of billions of dollars to Ukraine, and learning what flavor of ice cream Biden prefers are of utmost importance — especially as Nov. 8 nears.
