Why Did Biden Ignore Warnings From Within & Without When It Came To Inflation?

President Joe Biden’s longtime pollster was publishing warnings just months into Biden’s presidency about the risks posed by chaos at the border and the growing political dangers posed by inflation.

“Immigration is a growing vulnerability for the President,” Biden’s pollster John Anzalone and his team of pollsters suggested in one memo.

“Voters do not feel he has a plan to address the situation on the border, and it is starting to take a toll,” they wrote, as the nation underwent a wave of migrants pursuing asylum from Central America and other countries at the southern border.

Biden’s pollsters also warned about the risks posed by inflation, which economic experts and Administration officials were assuring would be temporary.

“Nearly nine in 10 registered voters are also concerned about increasing inflation,” according to one polling memo, which was published in This Will Not Pass, a new book by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns.

The notes circulated from last April through January and covered a time when the nation’s economy was adding millions of jobs as it recovered from the pandemic, with many Americans going on spending sprees amid pent-up demand and returns to some normal routines.

Those two subjects of immigration and inflation have risen to the top of Americans’ concerns in a series of public opinion polls.

Stress among Biden’s team “delayed any serious action to address the border,” according to the Times.

Comedian Trevor Noah raised the concerns while mocking Biden at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ dinner, where Biden guffawed as the comedian skewered him for the state of the economy.

“Since you’ve come into office, things are really looking up,” he joked. “Gas is up, rent is up, food is up, everything!” he said, ending the joke.

The Republican National Committee even sent out a clip of the joke. His team warned Biden that his goal to raise taxes on the wealthy to fund new government investments wasn’t breaking through. The condition was likely damaged by prolonged internal squabbling among Democrats over Biden’s domestic agenda – with his Build Back Better plan still delayed in the Senate.

The memos said “less than a fifth of voters report having heard a lot about” his plan, which included billions in climate change investments and various proposals that poll well when looked at individually.

Anzalone warned Biden in May 2021 to stop telling “infrastructure” programs and instead describe the package – which did become law – as “the jobs bill.”
