The Washington Examiner reached out to Furman University’s Danielle Vinson for her take on how South Carolinians view President Joe Biden’s performance regarding the economy. Prior to the state’s Democratic primary on Feb. 3, Vinson, a professor of politics and international affairs, told the Examiner that Biden’s economic messaging hasn’t yet broken through with voters. She noted that wages are just starting to catch up with inflation, but voters will be comparing today’s grocery bills with those from three or four years ago. She said public sentiment toward Biden may change by November depending on how successful he or his surrogates are in convincing the electorate that the economy is better.
