According to new polling from The Economist/YouGov, only 4% of Americans say the economy is in “excellent” shape. The survey, taken July 23-26, 2022, asked respondents “how would you describe the current state of the American economy?”
4% said “Excellent.” 13% said “Good.” The rest —bad for Biden.
“The vast majority have a more negative view of the current economic state of affairs, as a majority, 51 percent, view the current state of the economy as ‘poor.’ Over a quarter, 28 percent, describe it as ‘fair,’ Breitbart reports.

Just seven percent of Democrats consider the economy to be in ‘excellent’ condition. Perhaps what is more, only five percent of Biden 2020 voters consider the economy to be ‘excellent,’ Breitbart continues.
