Enough: Most want Biden to fix economy, 'quit blaming MAGA’

A majority of voters want President Joe Biden to move past the 2020 election and its aftermath and fix the economy, a rebuke of his string of attacks on “MAGA Republicans.”

In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 58% said they want the president to focus on the economy, especially with gas prices expected to spike in the fall and more people believing the country is in a recession.

Asked if they agree or disagree with the statement “Joe Biden should quit blaming ‘MAGA Republicans’ and get to working on the economy he ruined,” 58% of likely voters agreed, and 38% disagreed.

The results were split politically.

Voters were also split on a similar question about if “MAGA Republicans” were a threat to democracy, the topic of Biden’s recent address in Philadelphia.

Said Rasmussen: “In his Sept. 1 speech, Biden said: ‘Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of likely U.S. voters agree with that quote, including 36% who strongly agree. Forty-seven percent (47%) disagree with Biden’s slam on ‘MAGA Republicans,’ including 39% who strongly disagree.”

The pollster added, “80% of Democrats agree with Biden’s quote about the threat of MAGA ‘extremism,’ while 76% of Republicans disagree. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 40% agree with Biden and 53% disagree.”
