If you’re a Dem right now, the proper reaction to this new poll from CBS News is “GULP!”

“The economy and inflation – rank as top priorities for Americans”:

“……and President Biden continues to get low marks on handling them”:

Quick, Ron Klain! Tweet another Jen Rubin article or post another photo showing how much hot dogs cost or such. That will do it!

Or not. . .

“When people say the economy is bad, it isn’t because of jobs. Just 17% give that as a reason. Negative judgments are overwhelmingly based on inflation, and gas prices”:

Oh, and when Dems tell Americans everything is great, “two-thirds say higher prices have been difficult or even a hardship, and now forcing many to make cutbacks.” It’s still the economy, stupid:

And a new poll from ABC News/Ipsos has similar results on inflation and the economy.

“Americans are more likely to place a ‘great deal’ or a ‘good amount’ of blame for gas price increases on Democratic Party policies (52%) and Pres. Biden (51%) than on Republican Party policies (33%) and former Pres. Trump (24%)”:

Again, Dems should say “GULP!” when they see these numbers. As for Title 42 and immigration, since there are Dem senators also calling for it to stay in place, this is not just a GOP problem for team Biden:

“As new @ABC News/Ipsos poll finds 60% disapprove of Pres. Biden’s handling of immigration, Politico’s @lbarronlopez tells @jonkarl that Democrats ‘clearly did not have a response in place to the attacks from Republicans’ on Title 42.”

But even worse for Dems is that there is a 20-point enthusiasm gap ahead of the midterms:

But Biden’s numbers on handling Covid have improved (we’ll have to wait and see if this holds once future waves of cases hit blue states):

And he’s getting good marks on Ukraine:
