‘Our house is on fire’: Even Democrats unhappy with Biden, voters worried about inflation and education

President Biden is coming under increasing criticism from his own political party as Democrats grow increasingly unhappy with his political leadership. New polls show he has big problems with all voters, even Democrats.

Biden on Wednesday sought to reassure frustrated blue-collar voters in Cleveland, Ohio. “People across the country are waking up every day wondering if they saved enough to support themselves and their families before they stopped working,” he told a crowd in a Cleveland High School.

He then highlighted federal action included in last year’s coronavirus spending bill to shore up funding for struggling pensions for millions of people who are currently working or retired.

Meanwhile, inflation remains by far the number one issue for voters, and it has contributed to the president’s downfall in the polls.

The latest survey from Monmouth University shows the president has 36% approval and 58% disapproval. And 88% think the country is on the wrong track.

Only 5% of voters said the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion was the biggest issue facing their family, despite efforts by Democrats to push the issue forward since the court overruled Roe v. Wade.

Even Democrats are unhappy with the White House lately. A top Democratic strategist told The Hill: “It’s infuriating. Our house is on fire and it looks like they’re not doing anything to put out the fire. They’re just watching it with all of us.”

Meanwhile, a new Gallup poll shows just 23% of Americans are happy with the White House, down 15 points from last year.

With the president’s low approval ratings and high inflation, Republicans are set to take control of the House of Representatives in this year’s midterm elections, dethroning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Concerns about public education are also very much on the minds of voters. A new poll shows it could also impact how parents vote in the November election.

The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools commissioned a Harris Poll on the issue. It reveals that education is now the second most important issue for parents in federal, state and local elections

The poll reveals that 82% of parents would be willing to vote for a candidate from a different political party based on their position on education. Pollsters surveyed more than 5,000 parents with children in kindergarten through 12th grade.
