Victor Blackwell of CNN questioned White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday, referencing a CNN poll that indicated a 37% approval rating for President Joe Biden on his handling of the economy and a 30% favorability rating on inflation.
Blackwell inquired, “The latest CNN poll from just days ago showed that Americans are pretty sour on the state of the economy. They think it’s in a downturn or getting worse. About half of respondents, the president’s approval rating for his handling of the economy is at 37%, 30% on inflation specifically. From the White House perspective, why is there disparity between the good story, the narrative you think you have to tell, and how it’s received by the American people?”
Jean-Pierre responded, “As we know, polls don’t show everything. They don’t tell the full story as you just stated, and we have to remember, if you look at where we were back in the fall of 2022, during the midterm elections, when the president delivered a historic midterms for Democrats, when we think about how as a Democratic president, he delivered a victory that we haven’t seen in decades and he led that messaging throughout those months going into November.”
The press secretary contended that the U.S. currently stands in a “stronger position” compared to the time of the midterms. She emphasized that Americans are emerging from a pandemic and are still in the process of recovering economically. (RELATED: Karine Jean-Pierre Says US Credit Rating Downgrade ‘Defies Reality’)
Jean-Pierre also highlighted the introduction of the “Bidenomics” policy, pointing out that inflation is on the decline, and stressed the administration's commitment to conveying their story of how they are addressing the economy.
