A new poll from Rasmussen Reports shows more Americans crediting President Trump for the booming US economy than his predecessor; raising serious questions for Democrats struggling to downplay the soaring recovery.

The survey shows over 50% of American voters believe the strong economic data, unemployment rate, and 4.1% GDP growth are directly related to Trump’s policies, with 40% giving credit to former President Barack Obama.

“With the unemployment rate still among 18-year lows and the Dow Jones Industrial Average still among all-time highs, voters are slowly giving President Trump more credit than President Obama for the improving economy, though there remains a stark partisan divide,” writes Rasmussen.

“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe the improving economy is due more to Trump than Obama, while 40% think it is more the result of the policies Obama put in place before he left office,” adds the report.
