33% Expect Stronger Economy A Year From Now, 41% Weaker

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Americans continue to have more hope for the economy five years from now than in the short-term.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that just 33% think the U.S. economy will be stronger in a year's time, generally in line with surveys for the past several months. Forty-one percent (41%) still believe the economy will be weaker one year from now, up slightly from 38% in March but down from a recent high of 50% last November.  Twenty percent (20%) expect the economy to stay about the same.
