People Hate the Economy Because of the Price of Goods They Buy Every Day

During the “Overtime” segment of HBO’s “Real Time,” which aired on CNN on Friday, comedian Bill Maher said that although the economic data is strong and inflation is heading in the right direction, people are generally worried about the security situation. He said he was dissatisfied with the They are not economical because of the prices of things they buy every day.

Marr asked Democratic strategist James Carville a question from viewers about why voters aren’t “responsive to positive economic news” in polls. Carville replied, “Well, 60% of Republicans believe the Earth is 6,000 years old.”

And Mr. Maher said, “Oh, that’s not a good answer.”

Mr Carville continued: “5.6% growth, well, by any record, people may not realize it, but look, I think we should have made a change. You and I both agree on that. But I don’t know to what extent they only see the president. People are suffering because of the cost of living, but you can’t look at this economy and walk away. This is a bad economy. I say: That’s impossible.”

Maher responded, “But that’s not what you’re really trying to tell voters.”

Maher then added: “Here’s what I think. For example, I can quote statistics, but inflation is going down, it’s going in the right direction, but what people buy every day in this country, bullets. , eggs, gas.”

Carville interjected, “The gas is down.”

Maher replied, “Not here.”
