57% of "Unaffiliated Voters” believe Democrats "ran the economy straight into the ground."
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — A new National Telephone & Online Survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 62% of "Likely U.S. Voters" believe the U.S. Economy is currently in a recession, while only 23% think the nation is not in a recession. Another 15% are not sure. And, Joe Biden’s weeks of trying to redefine the word "recession" has done little to quell the concerns within his own party, as nearly half – 47% of Democrats – also say they believe the economy is in a recession.
An overwhelming majority of 91% think the Economy & Inflation will be important in the 2022 Congressional Elections, a result mirrored in various other surveys.
“As might be expected, 85% of Republicans at least 'somewhat agree' that Democrats 'ran [the economy] straight into the ground,' as do a majority (57%) of unaffiliated voters,” said Rasmussen's poll report.
When asked, even 38% of Democrat Voters said they agreed with the following quote from Senate Republican Leader McConnell:
“Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”
Out of the 1,000 Likely Voters that Rasmussen surveyed between Thursday, July 28th and Sunday the 31st:
- 59% said they agree with McConnell’s late July statement,
- including 23% who said they "Strongly Agree,” while
- 35% said they disagreed.
