Gallup, Inc., an American analytics and consulting company based in Washington, D.C., and known for its polling, has released the results of a poll conducted from early to mid-January showing that confidence in the U.S. Economy is the highest that it has been in two decades.
Justin McCarthy, writing for Gallup, said that Gallup’s Economic Confidence Index currently stands at +40. The poll found that only 10% of Americans mentioned, “economic issues as the greatest U.S. problem,” (a record low) and “About seven in 10 say it is a good time to find a quality job.”
From a political perspective, McCarthy writes, “This greater confidence could serve as a boost to the reelection prospects of President Donald Trump, whose initial election coincided with an upward turn for the U.S. economy.”
