POSITIVE NUMBERS PERCOLATE
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.
