Americans More Optimistic About Economy Than at Any Point Since Before 9/11

A new CNN poll indicates Americans are more optimistic about the economy than they’ve been in almost two decades.

According to the poll, a bipartisan 68 percent of Americans said they give the economy a positive rating. That number has risen an astonishing 20 percentage points since Election Day 2016:

The number of Americans who say economic conditions are good has climbed a remarkable 20 percentage points since Election Day, from 48% to 68%. Most of the climb has occurred among Republicans, who now occupy the White House, from 33% then to 88% now.

The poll, conducted from November 2 to 5, took a random sampling of more than 1,000 U.S. adults.

Here’s a further breakdown of the numbers:

Over the last six years, the number of Americans who rate the economy as “good” has surged from just 10% in September 2011 to a broad 68% today.

One in six Americans say economic conditions are “very good” — that’s up from just 5% one year ago. Only three in 10 Americans say the economy is in poor shape.
