Overwhelming Majority of Americans Happy with Economy & Give Trump Credit

A new poll conducted by CBS News found that an overwhelming majority of Americans feel that the economy is good shape and are giving President Trump credit for the strong numbers.

According to the poll released on Wednesday, 71 percent of Americans “say the economy is in good shape, including a quarter who say it is very good.”

A staggering 94 percent of Republicans agreed that the economy is in good shape, as did a majority of Democrats (60 percent) and independents (66 percent).

Americans are giving Trump more and more credit, with 41 percent saying that “Trump’s policies are mostly responsible” for the booming economy, which is up 9 points from the beginning of 2018.

The good news for Trump doesn’t stop there, as a majority of Americans, 56 percent, say they are “optimistic about the stock market over the next twelve months,” which is up 7 points from the start of the year.

Americans are also “very or somewhat confident in their own financial situation,” according to CBS News.

This poll is bad news for Joe Biden, who is claiming on the campaign trail that he and former President Barack Obama are responsible for the current state of the economy.
