People are done with the lies.

A Rasmussen Reports survey, released on Wednesday (April 27), revealed that most likely voters blamed President Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.

The survey asked the group of likely voters, “Who bears the responsibility for higher fuel prices?”

From the multiple-choice question, 51 percent said Biden, 26 percent blamed oil companies, and 15 percent blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Rasmussen Reports also noted the steep increase in gas prices over the last year and a half, stating that in November 2020, the average for a gallon of gas was $2.20 but “rose to $3.50 by November 2021, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, and is now $4.21.”

The report also indicates that 61 percent “think Biden has not done enough to stop the rising price of gasoline, home heating oil, and other petroleum products,” contrasting that to 27 percent who “believe Biden has done enough.”

These figures are a terrible sign for Biden, as the report shows 84 percent of voters indicated that higher fuel prices are a serious problem, of which 61 percent said the prices are a very serious problem.

The majority of independent voters (54 percent) also blame the President for steep gas prices, and 77 percent of Democrats said they view the prices as a serious problem.

Rasmussen Reports’ survey only compounds Biden’s dismal polling figures, as a poll released by Gallup on Wednesday found that a mere 2 percent of Americans consider the economy under Biden to be in “excellent” condition.

In the Gallup poll, “four in five U.S. adults rate current economic conditions in the country as only fair (38%) or poor (42%).”
The poll showed 76 percent of U.S. adults think the economy is getting worse, with only 20 percent saying they think it is improving.
