DON'T BELIEVE YOUR EYES: Axios Smoked for Telling Struggling Americans 'the Economy is in Good Shape'

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.23.24

On Thursday, Axios was blasted on X for an article claiming “the economy is in good shape” despite a new poll showing that 56% of Americans think the U.S. economy is in a recession.

From Axios:

More than half of Americans — 56% — mistakenly believe the U.S. is currently in a recession and that Biden is responsible for a worsening economy, according to a stunning new poll conducted by Harris for The Guardian.

Why it matters: The economy is actually in good shape and there’s no recession. But misperceptions like this are a huge political challenge for President Biden and an advantage for former President Trump as they vie for second terms.

The responses to the Axios post were brutal, with many claiming it’s another example of how out of touch the media is with the struggles of everyday Americans.
