Voters Trust Trump On Economy More Than Congress But Not Themselves

Voters trust President Trump more than the average member of Congress or the average reporter when it comes to the economy, but most continue to trust themselves the most.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters trust Trump’s judgment more than their own when it comes to economic issues affecting the nation. Fifty-seven percent (57%) trust themselves more. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
