Despite the fact that Democrats are acting so calm and cool like they are going to steal the November midterm elections, they’re in heap, big, doo doo if James Carville’s adage about “it’s the economy, stupid.” And I think it is.
According to NBC, the voter groups that helped the Democrats win in 2020 are the same ones who are now being impacted negatively by the Democrat policies that brought us the current inflation crisis, and every other crisis that impacts Americans.
From NBC News:
“Inflation has been cited as a top concern by voters across the board, but economists and pollsters say it isn’t affecting all Americans in the same way. Those with lower incomes, Blacks and Hispanics, and those under 40, are being hit particularly hard given they tend to spend a greater share of their income on food, fuel and housing — areas that have seen some of the biggest price increases over the past year, surveys and polls show.
For Democrats, those demographic groups are the ones they need the most to turn out in November to hang on to power in Washington, or if nothing else, stem their losses.”
Middle-class and working-class families are the most impacted by inflation. The cologne and cufflinks class doesn’t feel it because they have enough money to live the same way they always have. Inflation decreases their purchasing power too, but the working-class people are hit harder because they have less discretionary income, and that makes them vulnerable to rising grocery bills and the fact that it’s getting harder and harder to fill up their vehicle’s tanks at the pump.
A mother of four in Pennsylvania told NBC News how bad inflation is hitting her family.
“It makes what I used to spend $40 on turn into $50 or $60, and then on top of it the gas, going from filling my tank for $60 to now it being $100 just to fill my tank,” she pointed out, explaining that the challenge to put food on the table for her kids a “daily struggle.”
“The past few months, inflation really just pushed us over the edge,” she said.
It’s this way for millions of people. Just three years ago, our world was a different place. Things always seem to get worse when Democrats take control.
Jeff Horwitt, a Democratic pollster, acknowledged that the prospects for Democrats in November are not good.
“Particularly for voters that are critical to Democrats doing well in November — younger voters, African Americans, Hispanics — these are voters who are feeling more pain than other voters, and they’re looking for real solutions,” he told NBC News. “What’s been the through-line is economic concerns, and the Democrats have tried to address these concerns, but what voters are saying is that so far it isn’t good enough.”
And they did it to themselves. Democrats always behave like they were given a huge mandate, but the problem is they always start pushing for policies and programs that no one voted for. Did anyone vote to shut down the fossil fuel industry so that they can’t afford gas or the groceries that now cost a fortune because the trucks that deliver them to the stores had to pay for fuel to get them there?
According to one poll, 64 percent of American adults believe Joe Biden is responsible for the cost of inflation, despite the fact that he’s not taking any responsibility and is blaming everyone and everything other than his own incompetence that brought us here.
The frightening thing is, Biden doesn’t seem to care about his approval ratings being the lowest in a very long time for an American president at this point in his term. The one thing you can count on is when the American people feel it hurting them in the pocketbook, they get out and vote, and things are so bad right now, and the shock of how bad it’s gotten in such a short amount of time, the Democrats are looking to take a bloodbath in the November midterm elections, as they should.
