Some Joe Biden voters are having buyer’s remorse over the president’s handling of issues like COVID-19 and the economy as Americans continue to face an uphill battle against pandemic-related policies and sky-high inflation.

Democrat mothers Mikaela King, Natalya Murakhver, and Marissa Caro-Cortese joined “Fox & Friends First” to discuss why they are worried about the president’s policies and the direction of the country.

“From my perspective, my personal experience, he’s made it a whole lot worse for people like me who voted for him,” King, who is a single mother, told co-host Carley Shimkus. “So I feel not only embarrassed, but I just feel very manipulated by… social media portraying him as someone who is going to fix the country.”

King explained how she has three jobs to make ends meet, and still struggles to feed herself under Biden’s economic policies as inflation sits at a 40-year high.

Murakhver cited COVID-related policies affecting children’s mental health as her priority as students face psychological repercussions from the pandemic.

“I’m a lifelong Democrat, I voted for Biden,” Murakhver said. “I believed him when he said that… kids would be back to normal and school would be fully reopened within the first hundred days.”

“Here we are, a year and a half into his presidency, and in blue areas like where I live in New York City, kids are far from normal,” she continued. “There is no attempt to even try to restore normalcy for these kids.”

According to Fox News polling, a majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of key issues including the economy, border security, the war in Ukraine, and gun reform.

Caro-Cortese said that although she does not regret voting for Biden, she is still “upset” about the direction of the country under Biden’s leadership.

“I tend to err more on the side of being a progressive, and we are just as upset about the direction of the country as anyone else is,” Caro-Cortese said. “President Biden was this funny, cool guy, but the funny old guy, Uncle Joe, that everybody calls him. So when he was up for election, we’re like, how bad can he possibly be?”

“Sure he’s not really an effective legislator if you look back on his track record,” she continued. “But we were told by the DNC, by everybody else, he’s going to be fine. He’s going to push a progressive agenda. He’s going to check all the boxes that all of you are thinking about, and he’s going to be one of the most progressive leaders in history, and none of that has come true.”

Biden and White House officials have made it clear he intends to run for reelection in 2024 despite crises plaguing the administration.
