Poll shows 81% of parents of under-18s cutting back on Christmas spending
Boy is it ever a good thing, for Joe Biden, that children don’t vote.
That’s because of the bad news they got about their Christmases from a Washington Secrets column by Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner.
He cited a CRC Research poll that 81% of parents with children under 18 are “cutting back” on their Christmas shopping in a time of extreme inflation under Joe Biden’s economic policies.
The numbers were crunched by CRC Research and showed that “well more than half the nation” is spending less on the holidays.
“In a survey for the 85 Fund provided to Secrets, the Virginia-based firm said 56% of people cut back spending on Thanksgiving and that even more, 69%, are slashing their Christmas spending,” Bedard reported.
“Holidays have taken a large hit this year, with over half of registered voters surveyed indicating they are cutting back on their Thanksgiving dinner plans due to increased grocery costs,” said the CRC’s Mia Phillips.
Bedard reported, “Surging inflation has already whacked people in the wallet, but the $6 butter for the Thanksgiving table and $85 price tag on the Magic Mixies Magical Misting Crystal Ball many children want for Christmas has sent consumers into shock.”

Phillips noted, “Nearly 7-in-10 registered voters are expecting to cut back on Christmas shopping this year, and 81% of parents with children under 18 are cutting back due to the increase in prices from last year.”
Bidenflation, as the economy has been defined under Joe Biden’s economic policies, has been above 8% for much of 2022. That means it’s costing the average family several thousand dollars more this year to pay for the same lifestyle they had last year.
Food prices have exploded, as have prices for gasoline for cars and home heating costs.
“These economic circumstances hurt young people and their families more, as 66% of those age 25-34 [are] saying they will be cutting back this year,” Phillips said.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
