As Americans feel the crushing pressure of a hyperinflated economy led by a largely-absent Biden administration, a new poll from NBC pollster Public Opinion Strategies (POS) has found that the country’s brightest financial days were when President Trump was in the White House.
According to the poll, American “financial satisfaction” under the leadership of President Donald Trump was up 21 percent in 2018, which was the highest percentage in nearly three decades.
The poll further found that while Trump netted a 21 percent uptick in support for his financial policies, Americans today are feeling significantly less enthused with Biden’s performance. Per POS, Biden netted negative one percent in financial satisfaction in 2022, losing points with voting Americans.
These findings come hot on the heels of yet another NBC poll that revealed 70 percent of Americans believe the United States is “off on the wrong track” and headed in the wrong direction. According to their survey, which was conducted between Aug. 12 and Aug. 14, these findings heralded the first time in NBC polling history where five tracks in a row indicated 70 percent of Americans were feeling discouraged about the country’s future.
In July, President Trump tackled the issue of record-high inflation in a statement released through his Save America PAC. “Inflation just hit ANOTHER 40-year high of 9.1%, which is terrible for our Country. Fuel prices up 60%, Airfare up 34%, Eggs up 33%—how can people survive this? How can businesses survive this? Our Country is so weak right now because the Radical Left Democrats have no clue what they are doing,” he wrote.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, a new survey conducted by McLaughlin and Associates on Aug. 20 found that among Republican voters in a potential 2024 presidential primary, President Trump is still dominating the field of contenders with a whopping 55 percent of support.
