CNN Poll: Biden Worse than Carter on Economy
A CNN poll found that President Biden’s approval ranking on the economy is worse the former President Jimmy Carter.
In 1978, a CBS/New York Times poll had Carter at a -8 point net approval on the economy. In comparison, Biden has a -13 point net approval on the economy.
Inflation and high gasoline prices appear to be the driver of Biden’s poor polling on the economy.
The CNN story put Biden’s poor rating in context by comparing him to other presidents, stating, “… the average president at this point in the last 44 years (since we have been polling on the topic) had a net economic approval rating of +5 points.”
CNN then concluded, “That means Biden’s is 18 points worse than the average.”
CBS News is reporting inflation is the highest in almost four decades.
CBS News reports that inflation has hit its “highest annual increase in nearly 40 years.”

Biden’s poor performance on inflation and comparisons to Carter means trouble for Democrats.
Next year’s midterm elections look bad for Democrats and that’s why right now 23 House Democrats are not running for reelection next year.
