Since the start of the Russo-Ukrainian War, The Floridian has been diligent in monitoring gas prices, inflation, and the Biden administration’s policy decisions and their impact on the American economy, the worldwide economy, and geo-political relations as a whole. We’ve seen the administration go to Maduro in Venezuela for oil, we’ve seen Biden’s approval rating plummet, especially with Hispanics, and we’ve seen historic records for gas prices. As of June 7th, the price of gas has hit another record high ($4.919) according to AAA.
Yesterday, President Joe Biden (D) sent out a tweet reflecting on the time in which he was sworn in compared to today. According to the President, when he took office, the world was aflame. Up was down, down was up, and there was nothing anybody could do about it. According to the President, he and his administration fought what seemed to be an unstoppable fire.
Biden’s reflection on his time in office was demonstrated in a tweet:
At the time I took office about 16 months ago, the economy had stalled and COVID was out of control.
Today, thanks to the economic plan and the vaccination plan that my Administration put into action, America has achieved the most robust recovery in modern history.

“At the time I took office about 16 months ago, the economy had stalled and COVID was out of control. Today, thanks to the economic plan and the vaccination plan that my Administration put into action, America has achieved the most robust recovery in modern history," stated President Biden.
As of right now, Biden’s approval rating has dipped to 40.7% in the RealClearPolitics average with some polls such as Quinnipiac have the President’s approval numbers as low as 38%.
Biden has what seems to be two options during the upcoming midterm elections: Either attempt to persuade the American people that they are better off than they are 2 years ago or make an attempt to fix the problems that have occurred during his administration. It is possible, probable, in fact, that some of the issues that the nation has faced in the past 16 months should not lay at the feet of Joe Biden. But will Joe Biden be able to solve those problems? Only time will tell.
