President Biden's approval rating dropped to a new low of 33%, according to a recent poll from the New York Times and Siena College.

Additionally, 78% of Americans said the country is headed in the wrong direction, and 64% of Democrats say they want someone else running for president in 2024, with many citing Biden's age as a concern.

"Joe Biden needs to take responsibility for those low poll numbers, he's the one that instituted his policies that led to them," says Tom Eddy, Chairman of the Erie County Republican Committee. "The old adage is that people vote with their wallet, and obviously the economy is huge with regards to inflation, and people feel that. Even though they've gotten nice raises lately, the raises don't equal the amount of inflation."

Others believe that big oil companies are largely to blame for the current economy.

"A lot of people like to point fingers at the president or at government officials and quite frankly it has very little to do, if anything, with the president," says Ryan Bizzarro (D-Erie), US Representative for the 3rd District. "I think that what we're seeing right now, and based off of statements that have been out there by corporations and certain oil companies, that we know that this is price gouging. Period. This has more to do with price gouging with anything."

With Biden's approval rating so low, it could indicate a difficult upcoming election season for Democrats.
