The poll was conducted from May 25th to May 29th – the Trafalgar Group joined the Convention of States Action for the poll.

While a large majority of Republicans (87.9%) blamed Biden for the country’s roaring inflation, only a third of Democrats (33.3%) blamed the president. And while 55.2% of Democrats blamed the war between Russia and Ukraine as the main culprit for rising inflation, only 9.7% of Republicans agreed. A whopping 61.1% of those categorized as “None Party/Other” blamed the president, while 27.1% singled out the conflict abroad.

“First, the Federal Reserve has primary responsibility for controlling inflation,” Biden wrote. “I agree with your assessment that fighting inflation is our biggest economic challenge right now.”

“Second, we must take all practical steps to make things more affordable for families at this moment of economic uncertainty – and to increase the productive capacity of our economy over time,” the president said. “I have done everything in my power to help working families during this challenging time – and will continue to act to reduce costs where I can – but now Congress must act too.”

“Third, we must continue to reduce the federal deficit, which will help ease price pressures,” he wrote. The majority in the poll blames Biden for rising inflation
