      Dems now behind 49-45.  44% of voters think the economy is the top priority, up from 36% in July.

      Gas + Groceries + Falling home values/rising rents + 100% odds of 2022 recession = Republican victory in November

      On the other hand, Joe Biden had his highest rating since January, 2022:

      But Yamiche Alcindor and Claire McCaskill are credible on this topic. They crushed Matt Gorman on the panel.

      Mick, isn’t “highest” a relative term?

      October 17, 2022 Rasmussen has Biden at a 44% approval point. On October 17, 2018 Trump was at 49%. The republicans were killed in the 2018 midterms in 2018?

        You can’t run an economy by slamming down the gas pedal (Congressional spending) and simultaneously slamming on the brakes (the Fed raising interest rates). One or the other is going to fail.

        What makes me mad about inflation is that it erodes savings. It takes most people a lot of sacrifice to build up a nest egg. To have it devalued by 13% (being generous here) means a lot more time, sacrifice, and effort just to build it back up again. Not to mention main store of savings (stocks) are down 25% lately.

        Not to mention that real wages have declined every month for 19 straight months. An astonishing “accomplishment.”

        This administration used unified party control to enact every progressive fever dream policy. They have proven that the left doesn’t understand economics or human nature. MMT is wrong, and the Democrats have broken the economy. KJ-P bragged about how the American Rescue Plan passed without a single Republican vote. Great. I hope when Biden claims that inflation will be worse under the Republicans, they hammer his press secretary over the head with her own words.

          I’ve had 2/3rds of my investment in cash for nearly a year now.  Just bad feelings about economic mismanagement by the current administration.

      If I had sold in May, when I posted a stocks thread, I could have avoided a 25-30% drop.  Would have had to pay capital gains, but would have a lot of capital to deploy in a few months.

      We’re going to be paying for this for decades. We flooded the system with money, didn’t allow many people to work, ruined kids with the sorry-assed approach to “education” (thanks education unions!), and beat the hell out of many of our core industries.

      Just makes me sick.

        👍🏻

        That’s about the size of it. And further isolating voters from decision making institutions won’t help. Deferring to international bureaucratic bodies doesn’t seem like a plausible turn around strategy for OUR country?
