(BLP) – No one in the Biden administration wants to talk about inflation (I mean really address inflation), and that’s hurting them when it comes to voters who are reportedly changing their shopping habits.
According to a new detailed report from the Food Industry Association (FMI), nearly 90% of shoppers have altered what they buy and the quantity of those purchases at grocery stores amidst skyrocketing prices.
This shocking information on US shopping trends highlights just how close to home inflation is hitting the average American family. Moreover, the bombshell report showed that American consumers are highly concerned about rising food costs.
The FMI report showed that 59% of those surveyed said they were looking for deals when grocery shopping. While 35% said they were switching to “store brands” to cut costs.
Of course, despite all of this information about consumer spending habits, Biden and his administration are still dismissing the hot-button issue of inflation as part of “Putin’s Price Hike.”
Even though many Americans are seeing through the President’s out-of-touch rhetoric. And simply want solutions instead of empty platitudes.

Americans are clearly hurting under Biden’s economy, and are feeling the pressures to readdress their monthly spending to stay afloat amidst rising food costs and gas prices.
Per the report from FMI, 52% of meat-eaters are purchasing smaller portions than before, with around a third of those respondents saying they have cut out beef and/or chicken entirely.
On top of that, 64% of consumers admitted that they have bought groceries online in the past month. While 15% said they now grocery shop online exclusively.
Unrelated to the report, some Americans are beginning to believe all of this economic turmoil is part of the Biden a
This idea was recently reinforced after a Biden advisor appeared on CNN to say that Americans must pay higher gas prices as part of the new initiative – WATCH:

Brian Deese, Director of the White House’s National Economic Council, stated to CNN that Biden’s policies will make Americans pay more at the pump, but that Americans ought to be assured that in the end, this uptick in costs is a good thing.
As one might expect, it’s out-of-pocket comments like these that have led 71% of voters to not look forward to Joe Biden running for re-election in 2024.
American pocketbooks are hurting, yet all they are being told is to deal with the ever-rising increase in costs, “stop complaining,” and all in all, view the whole situation as a patriotic thing because paying more means “sticking it to Putin.”
None of those so-called “solutions” are posed to sit well with US voters come midterms in 2022. And Democrats are starting to realize that.
