Heading into the midterms, it’s the only semi-plausible issue they’ve got. From Ron Paul at ronpaulinstitute.org:
This week, US gasoline prices hit an average of $5.00 per gallon, an all-time record. Officially, consumer price inflation hit 8.6 percent last month compared to last May. That is a four-decade high. In reality, though, inflation is much higher than that, as anyone who works for a living can affirm.
On the foreign front, the US is closer to nuclear war with Russia than at any time since the Cuban missile crisis. The Biden Administration’s policy seems to be urging Ukraine to fight Russia down to the last Ukrainian. Even the mainstream media is now desperately trying to correct its “Ukraine is winning” false narrative.
The most recent polls have President Biden with a record low approval rate, and Democrats in Congress are bracing for a real beating in the mid-term elections in just under six months. With 83 percent of those polled this month by ABC News/Ipsos citing the economy as an extremely or very important issue in determining how they will vote in November, time may be running out for a Democrat-controlled House, and Senate.
