BOTTOM OF THE LAKE, Wisconsin – Americans in Wisconsin noted President Biden’s performance after inflation soared at the fastest rate in 40 years.
“Can you go any lower? Tom, a resident of Fond du Lac, said when asked to rate the president on an AF scale.
“I’d give it an F, in my opinion,” Tom continued. “I don’t think he’s running this country the way he should be.”
While others agreed with Tom, some gave Biden higher marks.
INFLATION RISE 8.5% IN MARCH, REACHING NEW HIGH IN 40 YEARS
“I give it an A,” said one Wisconsin resident.
Wisconsinites handed out the notes hours after the Labor Department reported consumer prices rose 8.5% from a year ago. Inflation rates have steadily increased in recent months, rising 1.2% from February to March.
Eden’s Donna said inflation, along with the energy crisis, played a major role in how she rated Biden.
“I’ll give it an F,” she told Fox News.
“Over the next two years, I think there will be a lot of people struggling with inflation and the cost of living,” Donna added. “If he doesn’t change things, I think it’s going to be bad for our country.”
But the resident who gave Biden an A laid the blame elsewhere.
“He’s there to sign the bills,” he said. “All bills in the United States go to the House and when the House votes on the bill, they send it to the Senate. So if you have a 50/50 Senate, what do you expect?”
“The president can do so many things, but if he doesn’t have Congress or the House of Representatives behind him, his whole agenda won’t work,” the resident told Fox News.
The division in Congress has been a constant challenge for Biden and has sunk his flagship Build Back Better plan.
Biden “took everything from the workers,” Tom told Fox News. He said inflation is costing Americans more than ever.
“We just spent $105,” Tom added as he left the grocery store. “We don’t have kids at home and we haven’t bought a single bag of meat, just salads.”
BIDEN’S APPROVAL RATING FALLS TO LOWEST POINT IN HIS PRESIDENCY: POLL
Michael, also from Fond du Lac, told Fox News that Biden was giving a “middle of the road” performance.
I would give it “probably about a C,” Michael said. “I’ve heard a lot of good and I’ve heard a lot of bad.”
April, another Fond du Lac resident, gave Biden an “F minus minus minus.”
She said the closure of the Keystone XL pipeline played into her assessment. Biden is “putting our economy in the hands of other people,” she said.
A Wisconsin resident told Fox News, “I give him a B. He tries his best.”

Tom said Democrats “are going to lose” in the midterm elections.
Another Wisconsin resident told Fox News that Democrats need to sell their message for midterms in a way that “will motivate and rally us to come back and vote for them.”
“Let’s get delegates who will go out there to support us and support this president so that all of his agendas can be passed,” the resident said.
