Americans are anxious as economic concerns grow.

The mood in America is unsettling and worrying. As inflation continues and stock markets decline, the percentage of people who describe how they feel and say the economy is bad has reached a record high for President Biden.

Democrats who say that Biden is slow to react to the case are especially likely to say he is distracted. About half of it is.
