President Joe Biden apparently believes that he would be polling better with the American people if media outlets were reporting on the economy “the right way.”

The president spoke briefly with reporters on Saturday — just before he departed the White House to spend Christmas at Camp David — and he made it clear the he blamed the media for his floundering poll numbers, particularly with regard to his economic policies.

When one reporter asked Biden about his “outlook” on the economy going into 2024 and his re-election campaign, Biden replied, “All good. Take a look … Start reporting it the right way.”

Biden’s comments came in the wake of yet another poll indicating that he is struggling to get above water even with his own party.

“Talk about shooting the messenger,” Fox Business host David Asman posted on X, adding, “61% of Democrats joining the 93% of Republicans and 85% of independents who say the economy is in bad condition … and Biden’s blaming the media.”

According to the Fox News poll Asman mentioned, only 14% of Americans believe that they have been helped by President Biden’s economic policies — and almost half (46%) say that “Bidenomics” have resulted in them personally taking a financial hit. Overall, 78% said that the economy was in bad shape.

In addition, 68% said that they were not satisfied with the direction the country was going — a 15-point increase from 53% just after Biden took office in 2021. The jump was much higher among Democrats — from 20% in 2021 to 47% in this latest poll.


The poll also indicated that Americans are worried things could get worse before they get better, economically speaking — just 22% said that they believed the economy would improve in the next year, while twice as many respondents (44%) said they expected to see things get worse in 2024.

As the 2024 presidential campaigns ramp up, the economy ranks highest among voters’ concerns — followed by illegal immigration.
