AP-NORC poll: Biden hit on economy as more say finances poor:
WASHINGTON (AP) – More U.S. adults are now feeling financially vulnerable amid high inflation.
That’s a political risk for President Joe Biden and fellow Democrats a month before the midterm elections.
A new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research says that some 46% of people now call their personal financial situation poor.
That figure has risen from 37% percent in March. It comes at a particularly inopportune moment for Biden, given that the share of Americans who felt positive about their finances had stayed steady over the last few years.
A majority of Americans now see high prices as beyond Biden’s control, but they disapprove of his handling of the economy overall.
