AND THE POLL
“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.
