A large majority of American voters do not believe President Joe Biden's priorities are in the proper order when it comes to record-setting inflation currently ripping the country; a sinister new poll showed on Sunday.

The agenda items the Progressive President has been focused on, like his $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill, are only pushing his critics further away, according to the poll from CBS News and YouGov.

The survey, taken January 12 to 14, reveals Biden started the year with the same lackluster support numbers; he finished last with just 44 percent support.

It's still more from an appalling Quinnipiac poll released last week that gives him a 33 percent approval rating.

Among the majority who don't support him, more than three-quarters -- 76 percent -- have said Biden's $1.75 trillion social and climate reform package that was indefinitely delayed by centrists in his own party last month would not promote their opinion of him.

Sixty-three percent of those critics said they would like the President more if inflation was under control.

The consumer price index, which struck its highest level since June 1982, is a weak point for Biden among voters who both support him and don't.

Across all respondents, 65 percent have said Biden is not putting enough focus on inflation compared to just 28 percent who are content with the attention he's giving the matter. A mere 7 percent said he's paying "too much" attention to it.

His numbers on the general economy are similar, with 58 percent of people polled complaining Biden's not focusing enough on it while 35 percent claiming he's focused on the economy "the right amount."

The Labor Department said Wednesday that the consumer price index rose 0.5 percent last month after increasing 0.8 percent in November.

Biden attempted to emphasize that slowing rate of growth as an achievement.

The growth pushed annual inflation to 7 percent in December, the highest level since June 1982, and up from November's 6.8 percent annual rate.

In a remark, Biden called inflation "a global challenge" and claimed the latest numbers were good news, showing the monthly rate of price gains slowed in December from the prior month.

"Today’s report—which shows a meaningful reduction in headline inflation over last month, with gas prices and food prices falling—demonstrates that we are making progress in slowing the rate of price increases," said Biden.

Nationwide, gas prices did drop 2.2 percent in December from the prior month but stayed 50 percent higher than a year ago. Food prices were up 0.5 percent on the month and 6.3 percent higher than a year ago, making it unclear what dropping food prices Biden was citing.

"At the same time, this report underscores that we still have more work to do, with price increases still too high and squeezing family budgets," Biden admitted.
