15 months into the Trump Presidency,aA new poll by Quinnipiac University shows that even Democrats have finally admitted that the successful U.S. economy is the result of the work of President Trump and not President Obama.
Until now, a plurality of Democrats still believed the soaring stock market post-Trump era should be attributed to Obama, despite the fact markets are forward looking.
As reported by Newsweek
A plurality of Democrats have indicated that President Donald Trump—not his predecessor Barack Obama—is responsible for the current state of the country’s economy, a tonal shift from earlier this year when top members of the party argued the economic conditions were still due to former President Barack Obama.
As of April 9, 46 percent of Democrats agreed that the United States economy was down to Trump, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released earlier this week. The results suggest the current occupier of the White House is getting more credit for the economy, although the view that the current state of the economy is healthy was not a uniform one.
In the poll, 51 percent of American voters said the economy was in “good” condition, while 27 percent thought the state of the economy was “not so good” and 12 percent thought it “poor.” Just nine percent of participants in the survey felt that the economy was in “excellent” shape.
