Americans Growing Tired Of Biden
Based on a recent CIVIQS poll, the majority of Americans (68 percent) believe that the United States is headed in the wrong direction under President Joe Biden’s leadership. Only 22 percent of respondents believe that the country is moving in the right direction. The CIVIQS poll tracks shifts in public opinion over time and has received more than 470,000 responses from all 50 states and Washington, DC since January 2017.
A March poll conducted by Fox News found that 90 percent of voters are worried about the high inflation rate under Biden’s presidency, which has reached a 40-year high and cost American households an additional $5,200 on average in 2022. Similarly, a CNBC survey revealed that 70 percent of Americans feel financially stressed in Biden’s America.
Regarding former President Donald Trump’s indictment by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a YouGov/Yahoo survey showed that most Americans do not believe that the New York grand jury’s decision will negatively affect Trump’s campaign for re-election. However, a CNN-commissioned poll revealed that 76 percent of respondents believed that politics influenced the decision to indict Trump.

Biden’s Inflation Causes Financial Concerns Among Americans
Biden’s 40-year-high inflation, which cost American households an extra $5,200 on average in 2022, has become the top financial concern of 90 percent of voters, according to a March Fox News poll. CNBC’s Your Money Financial Confidence survey also revealed that 70 percent of Americans feel financially stressed in Biden’s America.
Interest Rate Hikes to Tamp Down Inflation
Biden’s inflation was partially caused by sharp interest rate hikes aimed at curbing the issue. The Federal Reserve continued to increase interest rates in March, which drew speculation from financial experts. The central bank’s decision weighed the need to reduce inflation against maintaining the stability of the banking system.
Trump’s Indictment by Far-Left Manhattan DA Causes Partisan Divide
The indictment of former President Donald Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is considered a left-leaning prosecutor, has caused a split among Americans along partisan lines. According to a YouGov/Yahoo survey, most Americans do not believe that the decision by the New York grand jury will harm Trump’s chances of re-election. Legal experts have noted that the partisan nature of the indictment is not lost on the public. In fact, a federal court recently denied Bragg’s request for a temporary restraining order to stop House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan from questioning a former prosecutor about the case against Trump. Many are also suspicious of the political motives behind the decision to indict Trump.
