If people start feeling better about the economy, does that change the coming elections?
People are feeling better about the economy.
A New York Times/CBS News poll out this afternoon says 41 percent of those surveyed say the economy is getting better. That’s an 8 percent jump from last month. Only 15 percent say things are getting worse.
President Obama got a 5-percent jump in ratings for his handling of the economy.
As usual, polls don’t make a lot of sense.
Last Monday, a Harris Poll found that only 32 percent of those surveyed are optimistic about the economy. And President Obama got disapproval ratings from 19 percent more people than today’s poll.
