Good news, Democrats! Your internal propaganda budget is apparently well-spent!
Democrats have a much more optimistic view of the U.S. economy than either Republicans or unaffiliated adults.
Currently, just 36% of Democrats believe the economy is in poor shape, according to new Rasmussen Reports polling. Nearly twice as many Republicans (67%) offer such a pessimistic view. So do 54% of those not affiliated with either major party.
It’s gotta be either the propaganda budget thing, or most of them work in government jobs that are untouchable until the entire economy Greeces out.
The national telephone survey of 3,500 American Adults was conducted by Rasmussen Reports July 14-20, 2012. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 2 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
Confidence in the survey, of course. Not the economy. Or the accuracy of the pollyannas’ views.
