Democrats Scrambling To Explain Biden’s Terrible Polls

via NBC News

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg addressed President Biden’s poor poll numbers on the economy, acknowledging that everything isn’t perfect and citing the challenges Americans have faced, particularly due to COVID and political polarization.

Buttigieg emphasized the positive impact of infrastructure improvements and economic developments, including decreasing inflation and gas prices, more reasonable airfare, and low unemployment.

“Americans have had a rough few years, especially when you think about COVID and what that did to our society and effects that we are still working through. You think about some of the political polarization that’s going on. We’re not out there saying that all of the work is done. We’re out there pointing to the good work that we’re doing,” he said.

“Well, a big part of our job, a big part of my job is to explain the good news in terms of the physical improvements that are coming to roads and bridges and tunnels and airports and ports around the country, and in terms of things we’re seeing with the big picture economically, inflation coming back down, gas prices, as you mentioned, coming back down. I would add to that, airfare is becoming much more reasonable lately. And unemployment that I don’t think has stayed this low for this long in my lifetime. But that doesn’t mean you can go around saying everything’s perfect.”

“The focus on — in my world — on things like airline passenger protection, as well as all that physical infrastructure. We’re doing the right things, we’ve got a lot more work to do.”

While recognizing ongoing challenges, Buttigieg highlighted support for President Biden’s efforts to lower the cost of living, prescription drugs, and insulin for seniors, as well as the focus on airline passenger protection and infrastructure.

“And we recognize that. Americans have had a rough few years, especially when you think about COVID and what that did to our society and effects that we are still working through. You think about some of the political polarization that’s going on. We’re not out there saying that all of the work is done. We’re out there pointing to the good work that we’re doing.”

“And what we’ve found is, Americans, even when they feel that we’ve got a long way to go for things to be really the way we want them in this country, agree with the steps that President Biden is leading in terms of how to deal with it, lowering the cost of [living], lowering the cost of prescription drugs, getting insulin down to 35 bucks for seniors.”
