Fox News Poll: As Trump ends year one, record number rate economy ‘excellent’
A Fox News Poll conducted at the end of President Trump’s first year in the White House finds more voters rate the economy positively today than have in nearly two decades.
And they give the White House credit for that: nearly twice as many say the Trump administration has made the economy better than made it worse: 40 percent vs. 22 percent. One-third says the administration has not made a difference (34 percent).
Approval of the job the president is doing on the economy is above 50 percent for the first time.
Trump’s overall approval stands at 45 percent, while 53 percent disapprove. That comes close to matching his highest ratings, which he received soon after taking office: 48-47 percent (February 2017). His low point was in the previous Fox News Poll, when 38 percent approved and 57 percent disapproved (October 2017).
The new poll, released Wednesday, was taken Sunday through Tuesday. The three-day federal government shutdown started Saturday, which was day 365 of the Trump administration. A funding agreement was reached Monday and the government reopened that evening.
This is just one year. Imagine what the economy will look like three years from now.
