That’s what a majority of voters said in a Yahoo News/YouGov poll released Tuesday. Thirty-nine percent said Biden has a “great deal” of blame regarding inflation, while 18% said he deserves “some” of the blame.
When it comes to the economy, inflation is the most important issue nationally, 17% of the poll’s respondents said.
Less than one-fifth of voters, only 18%, believe Biden is responding to the economic crisis efficiently, the poll found.
The economy could be affecting Biden’s low approval rating, which stands at 43%, according to Yahoo News’s write-up of the survey.
People are facing multiple economic challenges over the holiday season, including fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and the supply chain crisis. Unemployment, however, reportedly hit about a 50-year low.
The poll was conducted between Nov. 17 and 19 among 1,696 U.S. adults and had a margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points.
