Good Economy, Yes, But No Thanks to Trump?

Voters give positive marks to the U.S. economy these days, but thanks to the usual partisan division on most all things Trump, they tend to think the president has little or nothing to do with it.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 58% of Likely U.S. Voters rate the economy as good or excellent. Just 12% view it as poor. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
