Public Perception of the Economy is the Lowest Since 2008

Americans’ perception of the economy hit the lowest point since the 2008 crash in a new poll showing the Republican Party is more trusted to handle these kitchen table issues.

In an ABC News/Ipsos poll released Sunday, 69 percent of Americans claim that the country’s economy is ‘getting worse’, while just 12 percent say it is ‘getting better’ under President Joe Biden’s leadership.

In 2008, the same polling service found that 83 percent of respondents thought the economy was getting worse.

When it comes to niche economic issues like taxes, inflation and gas prices, Americans say that they trust Republicans to handle the topics more than Democrats – the current party in power.

More than one-third of respondents say they trust the GOP to handle the economy overall compared to the 25 percent who say they trust Democrats more to deal with the issue.
