Conducted in partnership with Convention of States Action, the Trafalgar Group poll of likely general election voters saw 39 percent of respondents blame the president, while 17.7 percent blamed former President Trump. About 14 percent of respondents pointed fingers at the current Congress, and 10.9 percent said the previous Congress bears responsibility. Another 17.9 percent said they did not know.
The partisan breakdown was even more stark, with 64.3 percent of Republicans saying Biden is culpable for rising inflation. Democrats were more split in their blame of Trump (27.3 percent) versus Biden (21.5 percent).
Some critics on social media pointed out that the Federal Reserve's "reputation escapes unscathed as usual."
