Democrats Far More Likely Than Others to See Economic Trouble Ahead

Democrats running for the White House face a big obstacle in President Trump’s booming economy, but most adults in their party are banking on an economic downturn by next year.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 39% of all American Adults think the economy will be stronger a year from now than it is today. Thirty-four percent (34%) expect it to be weaker by then. Nineteen percent (19%) predict that the economy will remain about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
