A majority of Americans are changing their holiday plans thanks to Bidenflation, according to a new poll.
Way to go, Brandon!
The Convention of States Action poll, conducted by renown pollster The Trafalgar Group, finds 52 percent of American voters surveyed said rising prices for groceries and gas have forced them to change their holiday plans to some extent. Nearly one-third of respondents said soaring costs will make them significantly change their plans.
“It’s already been a rough holiday season, and now hard-working Americans—who have earned precious time with family and friends this Thanksgiving—are being forced to cancel or change their plans. This is not due to their own actions, but rather to failed leadership in Washington, DC, ” said Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action.
U.S. consumer prices jumped 6.2 percent last month, the biggest increase in more than 30 years. The surge is the result of a confluence of problems, much of it driven by massive government spending and Biden Administration energy and regulatory policies.
At a press conference Tuesday, Biden laid out steps he says will help alleviate supply-chain bottlenecks and lower escalating gas prices — problems he fueled over his first 10 months in office.
“Moms and dads are worried, asking will there be enough food we can afford to buy for the holidays, will we be able to get Christmas presents to the kids on time and if so, will they cost me an arm and a leg,” Biden said.
Perhaps the president’s team is finally reading the polls.
The same poll finds 64 percent rated the national economy as being either “fairly bad” or “very bad.” The top reason for the poor state of the economy by a long shot is inflation, those surveyed said.
In the Convention of States poll, more than 73 percent of Republican and 58 percent of independent voters surveyed said inflation was impacting their holiday plans. Nearly 29 percent of Democrats said the same.
“When this holiday was established, the country came together to thank Almighty God for His blessings on our nation,” Meckler said. This year, it’s clear that the blessing we should seek is the restoration of leaders who listen to and are actually concerned about the lives of the people they represent.”
