After a good 2018, Americans are feeling pretty good about the year to come, though not quite as good as in years past.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of American Adults think 2019 will be at least a good year. That includes 15% who expect it to be one of the best years ever, 18% who feel it will be an excellent year and another 21% who say it will be a good year. Only 19% expect 2019 to be a poor year.
