Americans are more pessimistic than ever that the U.S. economy will improve during the next year.
Just 27% of American Adults now believe the U.S. economy will be stronger in one year, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. That’s down from 31% in June and is the lowest finding in regular tracking since January 2009. Prior to the latest survey, the number of adults expecting a stronger economy in a year’s time ranged from 31% to 45%.
Fifty-two percent (52%) believe the economy will be weaker a year from now. That’s up nine points from 43% in June and represents the first time a majority of adults are predicting a weaker economy in a year. Just 13% believe the economy will be about the same one year from now.
these numbers can't be helping obama's reelection, today he tied his all time low of 42% somewhat support- these numbers are a long way from what is needed to win the presidency, even if he gets all the electoral votes from the large liberal mecca populated states like NY and CA- and even his left of center base is leaving him, the young vote is leaving him, etc.
