Despite what the White House and its liberal media partners claim, most U.S. voters believe the nation is in a recession. And they are crystal clear as to who is to blame.
A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows 59% of American voters agree with the statement made by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) last month.
He clearly and simply said, “Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for a historical comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”
Washington Democrats’ one-party government has performed an amazing feat:
In eighteen months, they’ve taken an economy that was ready to soar and spent it into inflation. Now, their latest plans are threatening to tax it into recession.

Even better news for conservatives is that 91% of respondents said that the economy is an important issue in determining their vote in the November midterms. A startling 66% deem the issue very important.
And for all the spin being put on the economy, people who actually live in it are not blind to the destruction Democrats have wrought. When average Americans see how much more of their paychecks have to go for basic necessities like food and fuel, there’s no convincing them otherwise.
Whichever demographic of voters you choose, all feel nearly the same. The Rasmussen survey showed 62% of White voters, 53% of Black voters, and 67% of other minorities agree that the nation is in the throes of a recession.
Add up those numbers, and a full 62% of American voters believe the U.S. is in a serious economic downturn.
Go back to the Minority Leader’s statement about the state of the economy when former President Donald Trump handed it off to President Joe Biden. At least 45% of respondents strongly agree that the president and his party ran the economy into the ground, while only 35% disagree.
Ominously, if a recession is formally declared and the current administration gets even more desperate, it is possible that more stimulus checks are on the horizon.
One expert, George Washington University’s Tara Sinclair, said that the payments are now a “common policy” that are likely to be repeated.
That would prove what Rasmussen showed Americans already know — that the Biden administration is clueless about the most basic economic principles. And as McConnell noted, they took an advantageous situation and ran it straight into the ground.
