    Almost 80% of Americans say that inflation is impacting them personally, a new poll shows, with 57% blaming President Joe Biden.

    The Yahoo News/YouGov poll also found that inflation was the top issue on Americans’ minds, with 17% saying so. Additionally, just a small minority of Americans, 18%, say that Biden is doing enough to address inflation, which is at its highest rate in decades.

    Prices jumped 6.2% since last October, the highest rate in three decades. Contributing to the spikes is the increased demand for goods as the United States emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to supply chain bottlenecks and product shortages ahead of the holiday season.

    Just over 50% of Americans said that they were concerned that they “won’t be able to afford what they need during the holidays due to inflation,” while 45% said that they “won’t be able to get what they need” because of shortages, the poll showed.

    Poll results also placed Biden’s approval rating at 43%, mirroring other recent polls that reflect a decline since mid-August.

    Despite growing concerns over inflation, blame is largely split along party lines. While 73% of Republicans blamed the president for price spikes, 48% of Democrats blamed the pandemic and 29% blamed former President Donald Trump, according to the poll.

    The poll was conducted from Nov. 17-19 among 1,696 American adults, and it has a margin of error of 2.6 percentage points.
