Lots of people on the Left claimed that electing Trump would crash the economy.
The Left said there would be so much fear and uncertainty that the market would collapse. But the exact opposite is happening.
Isn’t that strange?
U.S. Economic Confidence Inches Up to New High
Americans’ confidence in the economy continues to gradually strengthen after last month’s post-election surge. Gallup’s U.S. Economic Confidence Index averaged +10 for the week ending Dec. 18, marking another new high in its nine-year trend.
The latest figure is up slightly from the index’s previous high of +8 recorded in both of the prior two weeks. The first positive double-digit index score since the inception of Gallup Daily tracking in 2008 reflects a stark change in Americans’ confidence in the U.S. economy from the negative views they expressed in most weeks over the past nine years.
Last month’s election of Donald Trump not only marked a change in the country’s political power structure but also significantly improved Republicans’ economic confidence — pushing the index into positive territory for the first time since March 2015.
It’s almost like all the fear mongering over Donald Trump was a bunch of baloney. Almost.
Imagine how different things are going to be once Trump is sworn into office!
