Poll: 46 percent of respondents approve of Trump's handling of economy

Source: Politico




By LOUIS NELSON 07/17/2017 08:06 AM EDT

Americans are increasingly confident about the state of the U.S. economy, a new Bloomberg poll released Monday morning shows, but that confidence does not extend to the performance of President Donald Trump.

Fifty-one percent of those polled said they believe the stock market will end 2017 higher than it is right now, while 30 percent said they anticipate a lower finish. Fifty-eight percent of respondents said they feel they are moving closer to reaching their career and financial hopes.

But just 46 percent of those polled said they approved of Trumpís handling of the economy, while 47 percent said they approved of his record on job creation. Overall, just 40 percent of respondents said they approve of the job Trump has done as president. Fifty-five percent said they view him unfavorably and 61 percent said the nation is headed down the wrong path, both numbers that climbed 12 points relative to a Bloomberg poll taken last December.

The presidentís net favorability rating was 41 percent in Mondayís poll, a nine-point dip relative to last December, when Trump was president-elect.

13. Bloomberg is just making up fake polls now

I don't believe they're actually calling anybody because those can't be real numbers.

He has not done a thing to help the economy. He killed the tourist industry in the US that is for sure.

18. When you have an Energy Secretary who doesn't understand

something as basic as supply and demand, how can we hope the general electorate knows much about economic policy. They still believe the "trickle down" myth.

6. Why even take a poll?

Most Republicans think college is a bad idea. This is 'Merica. You're just gonna get random answers.

A good follow up question is "why do you approve?" and listen to kindergartener level answers, or just a grunt.

16. This ongoing myth that Republicans are better at handling the economy

because they are all about the bottom line, and business. And now, there is an actual BUSINESSMAN in charge so he MUST be doing things more prudently........right?
