“Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”
Despite the best efforts of the Biden administration to redefine recession, the American people aren’t buying it.
According to new polling from Rasmussen, voters blame Biden and Democrats for the recession, which is actually happening.
Paul Bedard reports at the Washington Examiner:
Voters: It’s Biden’s recession, drove economy ‘into the ground’
President Joe Biden can hide the recession ball no longer.
In the latest economic survey from Rasmussen Reports, 62% now believe that the economy is in recession, including nearly half of Democrats.
And in rejecting Biden’s attempts to blame inflation on Russia’s war in Ukraine and his effort to redefine what a recession is, a majority of likely voters believe that former President Donald Trump gave him a surging economy and the Democrat promptly drove it into the ground.
Rasmussen cited Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s criticism in setting up a question about Biden blowing up the economy. McConnell said, “Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”
Asked about that, Rasmussen found that 59% of voters agreed, including 45% who strongly agreed with the Kentucky Republican. Thirty-five percent disagreed.

Our completely shameless media did their best to parrot the Biden White House on the question of a recession. This is stunning to watch:
Copying the White House, the media have become recession deniers.

Here’s one other important detail from the new Rasmussen poll via the Texas Insider:
An overwhelming majority of 91% think the Economy & Inflation will be important in the 2022 Congressional Elections, a result mirrored in various other surveys.
In other words, it’s still the economy, stupid.
Democrats are playing almost their entire hand on January 6th, with climate change as the ace in their back pocket.
They may regret it in November.DONATE
