Poll: Americans Trust Trump, GOP With Economy

A WSJ/NBC poll taken last week found that Americans give President Trump and congressional Republicans a thumbs-up when it comes to dealing with economic issues.

Polling 900 registered voters, the survey discovered that Americans think Trump and Republicans are doing a good job managing the economy, with 43 percent backing Republicans on economic issues and 29 percent backing Democrats

Voters also approve of GOP trade and tax policies.

Asked in the first survey last week which party is better equipped to handle the economy, 43% of registered voters said the GOP, while 29% said the Democratic Party—a GOP edge twice as big as in a July Journal/NBC poll.

The GOP also held leads when voters were asked which party could best handle taxes and trade.

The president’s overall approval rating also hit a new high at 46 percent (before dropping to 44 percent), with 90 percent of Republicans satisfied with his job performance.

Still, Democrats hold the lead on the generic congressional ballot 50 to 42 percent.
