POS­I­TIVE NUM­BERS PER­CO­LATE

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

Is good news about the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion reach­ing Amer­i­cans, de­spite the me­dia’s ef­forts to keep pos­i­tive out­comes off pub­lic radar? Maybe.

A new Ras­mussen Re­ports sur­vey finds that Pres­i­dent Trump’s fa­vor­a­bil­ity has reached 46 per­cent among likely U.S. vot­ers, just as his am­bi­tious 12-day Asian tour ends. Mr. Trump re­turns to the na­tion’s cap­i­tal late Tues­day night.

“The stock mar­ket con­tin­ues to soar to its high­est lev­els to date, the un­em­ploy­ment rate for Novem­ber is at its low­est level in 17 years and con­sumers are ready to spend just in time for the hol­i­days. The over­all Ras­mussen Re­ports Eco­nomic In­dex held steady at 128.9 for Novem­ber. En­thu­si­asm about the econ­omy started to grow im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and con­tin­ues to show the high­est level of con­fi­dence since this track­ing be­gan in 2014,” the poll­ster ad­vises.

The afore­men­tioned in­dex is com­piled from daily con­sumer sur­veys which track con­fi­dence, ex­pec­ta­tions and sen­ti­ment to­ward the U.S. econ­omy.
