Joe loves tauting his economic recovery —but that’s not the reality around the kitchen tables of everyday Americans. In fact, Exactly 50% of Americans say their personal financial situation has deteriorated over the past 12 months, accroding to a new Gallup poll.

A level not seen since the 54% who said they were worse off in May 2009, according to The New York Post.

From The New York Post:

Meanwhile, the poll found that just 35% of Americans say they are better off now, down from a high of 59% in January 2020.

Gallup, which has been asking the question since 1976, pointed out that it is “rare” for more than half of Americans to say they are worse off financially.

The discouraging outlook follows a year when the annual inflation rate hit 9.1% — the highest in 40 years — causing prices of everything from automobiles to eggs to soar.

The poll also shows that the economy has most affected lower-income Americans — defined as those who earn under $40,000 a year.
