Are You Better Off?


In a new poll from Fox News, 34 percent of registered voters said the country is better off than it was five years ago, while 60 percent said it isn’t. Eight percent of Republicans, 32 percent of Independents, and 57 percent of Democrats said the country is better off. A March Bloomberg poll asked whether respondents were personally better off than five years ago, and 46 percent said they were, while 36 percent said they were worse off, and 17 percent felt they were about the same.
