President Joe Biden can call his economic policy whatever he wants — Bidenomics is the latest catchphrase — but a new poll shows the majority of the American people sum up the state of the economy in one or two words: “Struggling” and “Uncertain.”
That’s according to a CBS News/YouGov poll taken June 26 – June 28 and surveying more than 2,000 U.S. adults. Sixty-one percent of Americans said the word “struggling” described the economy, 56% said “uncertain,” 36% said “unfair,” 27% said “punishing.” Meanwhile, just 15% said it could be described as “rebounding,” and 11% said it could be described as “expanding.”
The poll also indicates that 70% of U.S. adults say that their salary is not keeping up with inflation. Meanwhile, 65% said they would rate the U.S. economy as very bad. Fifty-eight percent say that it’s getting worse.
