The U.S. economy is doing great and the American people know it. Even a CNN poll reflects the positive view of most people. It must have nearly killed the folks at CNN to see the results of their own poll.
CNN Poll: 71 Percent of Americans Say Economy Doing Well; Majority Credits Donald Trump
A CNN poll released Monday shows an overwhelming majority of Americans believe the economy is doing well during President’s Donald Trump’s presidency.
Seventy-one percent of Americans now believe that the economy is in good shape, according to the poll. Only 27 percent rated the economic conditions as poor. CNN reports that the number is the highest positive number since February 2001 and the best of Trump’s presidency.
The poll shows that 51 percent of Americans give Trump positive ratings for his handling of the economy, while 42 percent disapprove.
The CNN poll shows that Trump’s overall approval rating is at 42 percent, the highest recorded in the poll since August of 2018. Fifty-one percent disapprove. Eight percent had no opinion.
