Republicans hold a commanding lead among voters’ views toward which party handles the economy better as President Joe Biden continues to pitch his economic policy to the American people, according to a new NBC News poll.
Republicans lead Democrats 49% to 28% among registered voters surveyed on the economy, which is the largest lead in NBC polling since 1991, according to NBC News. Biden has sought to sell his economic policy, dubbed “Bidenomics,” to Americans, which consists of high-spending stimulus programs and green energy subsidies.

Inflation has seen a massive spike under the Biden administration, reaching 9.1% in June 2022 and slowly decelerating to 3.0% in June before spiking again to 3.7% in August. The Federal Reserve has raised rates 11 times since March 2022 in an attempt to tame inflation.
Some experts have pinned the high inflation on the increase in stimulus under the Biden administration. The president signed both the American Rescue Plan and the Inflation Reduction Act, which approved $1.9 trillion and $750 billion in new spending, respectively.
