Americans feeling more upbeat about the economy

NBC/WSJ poll find increasing optimism and satisfaction with the economy.

It would appear that, at long last, Americans are feeling sunnier about the US economy.

Following 6 years of stagnation since the financial crisis of 2007-2008, recent positive economic developments, including strong recent GDP growth and better employment conditions, have generated a stronger sense of optimism among Americans, according to a new NBC/WSJ poll.

The poll found that Americans saying that they are satisfied with the state of the economy has risen to 45%, a 10 percentage point increase in the last 5 months.

However, there are some negatives as well.

The poll found that 59% of respondents still consider the country to be on the wrong track, as opposed to 31% who believe the opposite. 

As for President Obama’s handling of the economy, he remains underwater, with more Americans disapproving than approving of his performance.
