Public Doubts White House Claims on Popular Support for Biden’s Economic Policies

White House principal deputy press secretary Olivia Dalton faced skepticism and criticism on social media after asserting that President Biden’s economic policies are “incredibly popular” and that Americans are starting to “feel the impact” of his agenda. During a press briefing, Dalton discussed Biden’s upcoming speech where he plans to highlight the value of “Bidenomics” as part of his re-election campaign. Journalists challenged Dalton’s statement by pointing out the president’s consistently low approval ratings regarding the economy and questioned how the speech would sway public opinion.

Dalton defended the claim by stating, “The president’s economic policies are incredibly popular. When you ask people what they think about investing in our roads, bridges, and airports, what you – when you ask people what they think about educating and empowering workers, when you ask people about how they feel about reshoring manufacturing jobs and investing in America, those things are incredibly popular.”

However, Twitter users ridiculed Dalton’s assertion, questioning the popularity of Biden’s economy among the American people. Doubts were raised about the effectiveness of government spending on infrastructure projects that have yet to materialize and the impact on the middle class, especially considering the shortage of construction workers. Critics accused Dalton of lying and highlighted negative indicators such as negative real weekly wage growth over an extended period.

Dalton also claimed that Americans are starting to feel the impact of Biden’s economic agenda. However, this statement drew further criticism on social media, with users pointing out that the impact has been evident for more than two years and suggesting that delayed effects indicate a failure in the agenda.

In response to a reporter’s question comparing Biden’s economic performance to that of former President Donald Trump, Dalton pointed to the improvement in unemployment rates, emphasizing that the current administration inherited a situation with unemployment over 6% and has brought it down to historic lows.

These statements from White House officials have sparked widespread debate and skepticism, with many expressing their dissatisfaction and challenging the claims made about the popularity and impact of Biden’s economic policies.
