Republicans Seen As Performing Better On Economy And Jobs


An IPSOS report has found that the Republican Party is seen by Americans as performing better on the economy, and jobs and employment.

  • The report comes as President Biden prepares to formally unveil his FY24 budget, attempting to frame his administration as fiscally responsible with a proposed plan to reduce the federal deficit by USD$3 trillion over 10 years.
  • OMB Director Shalanda Young said: “When it comes to being fiscally responsible, this is not a new message from this president…"

Americans believe Democrats have a better approach to women’s rights (43%), the environment (39%), healthcare (36%), gun violence and control (35%), and education (34%) …”
