GALLUP POLL: 69% of Americans ‘Optimistic’ on Economy, 50% Better Off, Highest since 1998

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.11.19

A new Gallup Poll released Monday shows a whopping 69% of Americans are “optimistic” regarding their personal finances and expect their position to “improve over the next year.”

“Americans’ optimism about their personal finances has climbed to levels not seen in more than 16 years, with 69% now saying they expect to be financially better off ‘at this time next year,’” writes the survey.

“The 69% saying they expect to be better off is only two percentage points below the all-time high of 71%, recorded in March 1998,” adds the poll.

The strong economic data comes as more and more Democrats officially enter the 2020 race for the White House, with liberal politicians blasting the economic recovery as un-even and unfair.

The United States economic recovery continued to soar under President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress in September, with new data showing the “rip-roaring” job market gained 230,000 full-time positions.

According to CNBC, private payroll estimates rose by 230,000 last month; beating expectations that predicted 185,000 new jobs.

“Private companies added 230,000 more positions for the month, the best level since the 241,000 jobs added in February and well ahead of the 168,000 jobs added in August,” writes CNBC.

“This labor market is rip-roaring hot,” said a senior economist at Moody’s Analytics.

“If the current pace continues, Zandi said he expects the unemployment rate to fall near 3 percent over the next year. The headline jobless rate currently is at 3.9 percent,” adds the author.

The strong economic report raises serious concerns for Democrats just weeks ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly vowed to repeal the widely-popular ‘GOP Tax Scam’ should her party retake control of Congress this fall.

GREAT AGAIN: 83% of US Business Executives Say ECONOMY is BOOMING

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.31.18

A stunning new poll released this week shows the US economy continues to soar under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress, with the vast majority of businesses executives saying the nation is “doing better” than it was two years ago.

The survey published by Zogby Analytics shows a whopping 83% of America’s business executives see the country as “better today than it was two years ago” compared to just 11% who said it was worse.

“An overwhelming majority (83 percent) of respondents said business is doing better compared to two years ago. Whether this sentiment is the result of actions put forth during the Obama presidency or Trump presidency is up for debate and will be divided along partisan lines, but at the moment there is momentum building in the U.S. economy,” said the poll.

“At the moment, the economy of the United States is humming, though there are many problems that lurk ahead, such as a recession, interest rate hikes, and an untoward amount of federal debt. But right now consumers are confident and the psychology of financial markets is one that has a positive outlook,” added the survey.
