President Joe Biden’s House-passed “Build Back Better” legislation has support from roughly half of the electorate, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll, but a plurality of voters believe the roughly $2 trillion plan will make inflation in the United States worse.
As the measure heads to the Senate, where it is expected to be altered, the president and his party will have to grapple with voters’ concerns about its price tag. While some independent analysts have said the measure will not add to inflationary pressures, many voters disagree.
The survey was conducted Nov. 20-21, 2021, among 1,999 registered voters, with a margin of error of 2 percentage points.
