The latest Gallup poll released Wednesday revealed that only 2% of Americans think economic conditions are “excellent,” while 42% think conditions are “poor.”
More than three-quarters of Americans feel that the economy is getting worse, according to polling data. Four in five adults rate the country as “only fair” (38%) or “poor” (42%). Seventy-six percent of respondents believe the economy is getting worse, with 20% saying it is improving, and only three percent feeling that it’s staying the same.

Four in 10 Americans name economic issues as the most important problem facing the nation at this moment in time, which includes the 17% of Americans who mention inflation and the soaring costs of living at present.

Biden said that “last quarter, consumer spending, business investment, and residential investment increased at strong rates.” In the final quarter of 2021, GDP rose 6.9%, but that has not made up for the unexpected annualized rate in the first quarter of 2022.
“I think we’re — what you’re seeing is enormous growth in the country that was affected by everything from COVID and the COVID blockages that occurred along the way. Now, you always to be, take a look, and,” Biden trailed off before finding his words again. “No one is predicting a recession now.”
