Poll shows Trump with an 11-point lead over Biden on economy

President Biden’s Economy Presentation Falls Flat with Voters, Despite Booming Market

A recent poll by The Financial Times has shown a significant lead for former President Trump over current President Biden in terms of handling the U.S. economy. According to the poll, 42 percent of respondents chose Trump as the best steward for the country’s economy, compared to 31 percent who picked Biden.

Despite historically low unemployment and a booming stock market under his leadership, Biden has not fully convinced voters of his economic stewardship. The Financial Times poll showed rising sentiment on the economy, with 27 percent of respondents saying the U.S. economy is “excellent” or “good,” up from 21 percent in a poll four months ago. Similarly, 47 percent of respondents said they can “comfortably” pay their expenses, an increase of three percent from November. However, Biden’s approval rating on the economy remains at 36 percent, which is the same as it was in November.

The Trump campaign has continued to attack Biden over inflation, pointing out that consumer prices rose 3.4 percent between January 2022 and 2023. Meanwhile, the Biden administration has sought to promote its economic achievements, with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen boasting about the “historic recovery” of the U.S. economy under President Biden’s leadership, citing strong GDP growth and declining inflation rates.

Overall, the poll highlights how complex voter sentiment can be when it comes to evaluating candidates’ approaches to managing the U.S. economy.
