CNN’s Own Poll Shows the Highest Ranking U.S. Economy in Nearly 20 Years

Per DailyCaller, despite any potential shadows cast by impeachment, the American economy is forging ahead to the highest rating in nearly two decades.

According to a CNN poll conducted December 12-15, 76% of the 1005 Americans surveyed believe that the economy is either “very or somewhat good,” the highest percentage in a similar poll since 2001, when 80% said that the economy was doing well.

This marks a decisive jump from the same time last year, when only 67% felt that the economy was in good shape.

CNN reports as 2019 comes to a close, the US economy earns its highest ratings in almost two decades, potentially boosting President Donald Trump in matchups against the Democrats vying to face him in next year’s election, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS.

Overall, 76% rate economic conditions in the US today as very or somewhat good, significantly more than those who said so at this time last year (67%). This is the highest share to say the economy is good since February 2001, when 80% said so.

Almost all Republicans (97%) say economic conditions are good right now, as do 75% of independents and 62% of Democrats. Positive ratings are up across parties compared with August of this year, when 91% of Republicans, 62% of independents and 47% of Democrats said the economy was in good shape.
