Those gas prices? Now at record levels of $5 a gallon or more?
It’s deliberate, specifically being allowed by Joe Biden to push Americans away from fossil fuels, a majority of poll respondents is convinced.
It is Convention of States Action, working with The Trafalgar Group, that released the results of a new national poll that surveyed more than 1,000 likely 2022 election voters from May 25-29.
It revealed 53% of American voters are convinced the Biden administration “is intentionally letting gas prices rise to make Americans use less fossil fuels.”
Only 39.6% say that’s not the case.
Biden himself has admitted that the prices are providing an obstacle to Americans but told them to endure the problem because the nation will be better afterward.
“Surging gas prices are creating immense hardships both for everyday Americans and for our economy at large. This stunning data reveals that a majority of voters believe our gas crisis is by design. Specifically, that President Biden is intentionally allowing gas prices to continue to rise in order to advance the political agenda of Washington, D.C., special interests,” explained Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action.
“The hard-to-fathom, surreal idea that Washington, D.C., is working against the American people explains why Biden’s poll numbers are in the tank. The coming midterm elections are not a referendum on one party or another, but rather a moment of national accountability in which those seeking election–or reelection–will have to prove their willingness to fight for solutions that once again benefit the American people.”
The poll revealed 56.5% of independent voters think Biden is deliberately allowing gas prices to explode, hurting low- and middle-income families the most.
One well-paid Democrat in Congress recently boasted of driving her electric car to Washington – passing by all the gas stations with high prices for fuel.
But for most Americans, the prices for electric cars, many in the $60,000 range and up, are simply prohibitive.
For Republicans, it was 77.3% of respondents who think Biden is intentionally letting prices rise.
Even one in four Democrats hold that perspective, the poll revealed.
