Voters smarter than Democrats give them credit for...

Poll Finds Voters Blame Biden and Dems for Recession, Despite White House Spin
And in rejecting Biden’s attempts to blame inflation on Russia’s war in Ukraine and his effort to redefine what a recession is, a majority of likely voters believe that former President Donald Trump gave him a surging economy and the Democrat promptly drove it into the ground.
Rasmussen cited Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s criticism in setting up a question about Biden blowing up the economy. McConnell said, “Democrats inherited an economy that was primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”
Asked about that, Rasmussen found that 59% of voters agreed, including 45% who strongly agreed with the Kentucky Republican. Thirty-five percent disagreed.

Well at least "most" voters are smarter. I am quite sure that the 35 percent who apparently believe that Democrats did not drive the economy into the ground are almost exclusively Democrats who simply refuse to "ever" believe that there is anything bad that cannot be blamed on Trump, Republicans, or both. According to many Democrats, their Party is infallible!

The chart in question just reflects the degree of cognitive dissonance needed to remain loyal to the Biden Administration when it comes to anything economic.  It might be trying to be a funny meme, but in the end it is only funny because it is so close to the truth!
