Under Biden, National Optimism Is in Freefall

As Covid began to fade, optimism rose that we could quickly bounce back to the booming economy we enjoyed before the hysterical overreaction to the virus plunged us into a recession. But then people came to realize who we have in the White House now — a corrupt and demented fool who serves as a puppet for Bernie Sanders and rest of the neo-Marxist ultraleft. Consequently, even the liberal media that put Biden’s handlers in power has to admit that national optimism is in freefall:

As President Joe Biden completed 100 days in office, the country was optimistic about the coming year, but now, just after hitting the six-month mark, Americans’ optimism about the direction of the country has plummeted nearly 20 points, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds.

A majority — 55% — of the public say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country, a marked change from the roughly one-third (36%) that said the same in an ABC News/Ipsos poll published May 2. In the early May survey, Americans were more optimistic than pessimistic by a 28-percentage point margin. Optimism is now under water by 10 points. Looking ahead to the next 12 months, fewer than half — 45% — now report feeling optimistic about the way things are going, a significant drop from about two-thirds (64%) in the May poll.

Optimism is down steeply even among the Democrats who voted for Biden after 6 months of getting what they asked for, including inflation, profligate spending, open borders, violent criminals running amok, a war on energy, rabidly racist ideology, and the threat of a new wave of pointless Covid lockdowns and mask mandates.

The current pessimism will look downright rosy compared to the outlook if Democrats are able to ram their spending plans through, forcing inflation into Weimar territory.
