Many Not Taking Summer Vacation, 73% Cite Lack of Cash in Joe Biden’s America


Many Americans do not plan to enjoy a summer vacation in President Joe Biden’s America, a Fox News poll found in May, underscoring the economy as the number one 2024 issue for voters.

The Fox News poll found:

  • Of the 55 percent who are not taking a summer vacation, 73 percent do not have enough money to do so.
  • Seventy-two percent said higher prices impact their summer plans.
  • Fifteen percent do not have time and must remain focused on the daily grind.

The last time a pollster asked Americans this question, in 2010, of those who were not going on vacation, only 51 percent cited a lack of cash, while 20 percent blamed a lack of time, Fox News reported.

Increased gas and food prices are major factors in Americans’ budgets, the poll found:

  • Eighty-four percent said gas prices are an issue for their family, with 49 percent saying it is a huge issue
  • Eighty-nine percent said grocery prices are an even greater concern, with 62 percent saying it is a major problem

The poll sampled 1,126 registered voters from May 10-13, 2024, with a ± three percent margin of error.

Prices across the board spiked under Biden. The average Wisconsin family spent an extra $21,981 because of the increased cost of living under Biden, the Republican National Committee (RNC) estimated in May

Popeyes, Taco Bell, and Chipotle raised prices by at least 75 percent, according to the Food Institute. A McDonald’s Big Mac burger, a medium beverage, and a medium fry meal cost $18 in some locations, up $10 from 2018 when former President Donald Trump was in office.


Fifty-six percent of Americans believe Biden’s economy is in a recession, and a majority blame the president…
