Fox News host Dagen McDowell cautioned Democrats against basing their upcoming election campaigns on the economy, stating that “everything is good” immediately.
In recent times, Democrats have ascribed record highs to the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 index, attributing this to President Joe Biden.
Furthermore, January witnessed an exponential expansion of the labor market, as the United States added over 350,000 employment.
McDowell advised Republicans to prioritize immigration, as the economy is thriving for the average voter, as evidenced by rising wages and declining unemployment.
She remarked that the Republican National Committee’s messaging concerning the economy has been wildly inaccurate.
“The Republicans should be very careful about the messaging on the economy, immigration number one issue in Iowa and New Hampshire. I argue, because the economy is receding in importance among the voters because it’s good stock market at a record high. University of Michigan gauge of consumer sentiment.” McDowell said.
“Up in two months, the most in more than three decades. And homeownership. If you own your home at a low fixed rate, mortgage 3% and the end, the value of your home is going up. That is wealth accumulation. And you have a fixed rate mortgage. You have a fixed payment every month and your wages are increasing.” she continued.
“This in the monthly jobs report, 4.5% annual wage increases fixed monthly payment on your home. Your wages are going up at 4.5%. That is extra spending money. That’s how you benefit from inflation. And people are out spending. And the messaging from the RNC has been way off base. Yeah. Interesting. All right. Lots to watch as we head.” she concluded.
