AND THE POLL

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Amer­i­cans re­main up­beat about the econ­omy and give Mr. Trump credit, but are sour on the state of the coun­try, over­all. Sev­enty-seven per­cent say Mr. Trump’s poli­cies are at least some­what re­spon­si­ble for an econ­omy that most feel is do­ing well,” noted a CBS News poll re­leased Sun­day.

It re­vealed that 58 per­cent of all Amer­i­cans now say the econ­omy is good. An­other 46 per­cent credit Pres­i­dent Trump’s poli­cies “a great deal” for the cur­rent state of the econ­omy; 31 per­cent credit the poli­cies “some­what,” 15 per­cent don’t credit them very much, and 8 per­cent don’t credit them at all. In ad­di­tion, 45 per­cent say Mr. Trump has brought man­u­fac­tur­ing jobs back to the U.S., and the same per­cent­age have con­fi­dence in his abil­ity “to ap­ply busi­ness skills to gov­ern­ment.”

The poll of 1,596 U.S. adults was con­ducted Jan. 28-31.
