The results of a recent Quinnipiac poll show that US voters overwhelmingly approve of President Trump’s handling of the economy.
Americans who feel the country’s economic standing is “excellent” and “good” combined for what Quinnipiac said was “the highest total number for American voter attitudes on the economy in almost 18 years.”
Over half of those polled said they are doing better financially than in 2016, with voters largely reacting negatively to his approach to the current situation with Iran.
As Trump and his campaign team prepare for the upcoming 2020 election, they will look to capitalize on the growing US economy, as well as his Democrat contenders’ lack of an economic solution.
The nation’s economy is “excellent,” 22 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University National Poll today, the highest “excellent” rating for the economy. Another 49 percent of voters say the economy is “good.” The total 71 percent for “excellent” and “good” is the highest total number for American voter attitudes on the economy in almost 18 years.
Some 52 percent of American voters say they are better off financially today than they were in 2016, while 21 percent say they are worse off and 23 percent say they are the same.
But American voters give President Donald Trump a negative 38 – 57 percent approval rating, compared to a negative 41 – 55 percent approval in a May 2 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll.
American voters give Trump mixed grades for his handling of the economy as 48 percent approve and 45 percent disapprove. He gets negative grades for handling other issues:
- 37 – 58 percent for handling foreign policy;
- 39 – 53 percent for handling trade;
- 40 – 50 percent for handling the nation’s policy toward China;
- 37 – 47 percent for handling the nation’s policy toward Iran.
