Will Biden get an A+?
In a recurring segment on Fox News Digital, Fox reporters took the street, this time in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, to ask Americans to grade the President from A to F. The segment comes as the President’s approval rating fails to see any significant rebound, and the country battles the highest inflation rate in 40 years.
When asked, Tom, a Fond du Lac resident, questioned whether Fox could go lower before saying he’d give Biden an F. The reason? “I don’t think he’s running this county the way it should be run.”
Tom added that Biden had taken “everything away from the workers,” adding that inflation was killing Americans as he pointed to spending $105 at the grocery store.
“We don’t have kids at home, and we didn’t buy one bag of meat, just salads,” Tom added.
Another Wisconsin resident was far more generous, saying, “I’d give him an A.”
He pointed to divisions in Congress as the reason Biden wasn’t able to make a positive impact.
“He’s there to sign the bills,” the Wisconsin resident said, adding, “All the bills in the United States go to the House, and when the House vote on the bill, they take it to the Senate. So, if you have a fifty-fifty Senate, what do you expect?”
“The President can only do so much, but if he doesn’t have the… Congress or the House of Representatives behind him, all his agenda isn’t going to work.”
The grades were handed out a few hours after the Department of Labor released data that showed consumer prices had increased by 1.2 percentage points since February to 8.5% in March.
Donna of Eden, Wisconsin, shared Tom’s sentiment and graded the President an F, which she attributed to inflation.
“In the next year to two years, I think there is going to be a lot of people struggling with inflation and the cost of living,” adding that if Biden didn’t turn things around, “it’s going to be bad for the country.”
Others had far less polarizing views, like Michael, a resident of Fond du Lac, who told Fox News that he believed Biden’s performance is “middle of the road,” before giving the President a C grade.
“I’ve heard a lot of good, and I’ve heard a lot of bad,” Michael said
