Big Three Ignore Poll Showing 59% of Americans Blame Inflation on Biden for 5 Days

August 4th, 2021 8:39 AM

The ABC, CBS and NBC evening news networks have ignored a new poll shattering President Joe Biden’s economic image. 

A new Morning Consult/Politico poll of 1,997 registered voters released on July 28 found that 59 percent “hold Biden’s economic policies responsible for the 13-year high in inflation in the United States.” In fact, Morning Consult noted that by a 20-point margin, voters pointed to Biden’s policies over a return to pre-pandemic normals as being “very responsible” for the spiking inflation. ABC World News Tonight, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News ignored Morning Consult’s politically damaging survey during their July 28, July 29, July 30, August 2 and August 3 broadcasts. 

Morning Consult summarized why its survey’s results raised red flags for the Biden administration. The survey results also illustrated why the Big Three’s ignorance to its findings are so egregious: “The Biden administration and the Federal Reserve have said for months that recent inflation is temporary, an expected byproduct of the U.S. economy reopening after more than a year.” But, as Morning Consult noted, “[R]ecent cracks in the strategy have emerged as costs have risen, with President Joe Biden assuring Americans that his administration will ‘remain vigilant’ and make policy adjustments where necessary, while Republicans have hammered Biden and framed today’s issues as akin to the 1970s runaway inflation levels fueled by irresponsible spending.”

In the company’s estimation, “So far, GOP lawmakers appear to be winning the messaging battle.” [Emphasis added.]

The Big Three’s ongoing saga of protecting Biden from bad economic news continues with impunity.

All three networks recently blacked out the news when Biden gave approval for Russia to complete its Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The move came just months after Biden nuked construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and killed thousands of U.S. jobs. The networks appeared to have no problem ignoring the flagrant hypocrisy.

Conservatives are under attack! Contact ABC News (818-460-7477), CBS News (212-975-3247) and NBC News (212- 664-6192) and hold them to account for not covering the new Morning Consult/Politico poll showing a majority of Americans blame Biden for 13-year high in inflation.
