No, Really: 1% of Americans Think U.S. Economy "Very Good"
How about this one: 20% of Americans think their families are better off financially today than they were 4 years ago. Those 20% (plus another 1%) think the U.S. economy is in "fairly good" shape.
That leaves 78% of Americans thinking the U.S. economy is in bad or disastrous shape--nearly all of the 80% whose families aren't better off than they were 4 years ago--under a Republican president.
These figures, by the way, are taken from a March 7 - 11 CBS/New York Times poll.
Something tells me Obama isn't quite as popular as some folks would have us believe.
