NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF AMERICANS SAY TRUMP HAS NOT HELPED THEIR FINANCIAL STANDING
The October 2019 poll conducted by the Financial Times and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation found that 31 percent of potential U.S. voters reported being worse off financially since Trump took office in January 2017.

Nearly two-thirds of U.S. voters said they are not better of financially since Donald Trump took office, a new poll of likely voters finds.

The October 2019 poll  conducted  by the  Financial Times  and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation found that 31 percent of potential U.S. voters reported being worse off financially since Trump took office in January 2017. An additional third of Americans surveyed, 33 percent, said there has been no change in their financial status under the Trump administration.

Just over one-third of those surveyed, 35 percent, said they were better off since Trump moved into the White House.

Overall U.S. economic data shows growth of the nation's gross domestic product by 1.9 percent in this most recent third quarter. And Trump has repeatedly touted consistent stock market gains since he's been in office. "All-Time High for Stock Market and all the Fake News wants to talk about is the Impeachment Hoax!" he  tweeted  Monday morning.




















"Stock Market hits RECORD HIGH. Spend your money well!" he also remarked on Twitter Monday.

However, Trump has faced criticism over his ongoing trade war with China and a massive bailout of U.S. farmers who are blocked from trading with the world's second-largest economy.

The  Financial Times  poll found that 39 percent of those surveyed believed the most important factor in improving their financial standing is a rise in wages or income level. About one quarter, 24 percent, said the amount of personal savings and investments is the most important factor in judging whether their economic standing had improved.

According to  the latest jobs report , the U.S. added an impressive 128,000 jobs in October. That number was reached despite the General Motors strike and the end of temporary Census jobs, MarketWatch first  reported .

About one-in-five of those surveyed said their financial position was worse than before Trump took office and listed debt as the most important factor in making that judgment. Americans were starkly divided on whether or not they believe the Trump administration has been helpful to the economy as a whole. About 45 percent of U.S. voters surveyed said they believe Trump's policies have helped the U.S. economy overall. While another 45 percent said they believe his policies have hurt the economy.
Only 10 percent of Democrats surveyed said they believe Trump's economic policies have helped the country. But an overwhelming 84 percent of Republican Party members say they believe Trump's policies have helped the economy to grow.
The  Financial Times  survey was conducted among 1,005 adults last month.

The bottom 80% of Americans , by income, own 7% of the stock market.

So you admit that you did get a tax cut. According to John's seed, you are one of the 1/3rd of the country that are doing better than before your tax cut.

Congratulations.

Much more than 1/3 are doing better since the tax cut.  

Only 1/3 of them will admit it.

Relative to the actual income tax you actually pay in real dollars, what percent is it?

Notice the 2020 democrats talk about everything except economics. When everyone is working and earning more money you have little to offer as a democrat.

Selling welfare and entitlements isn't so easy these days is it? 

And now we have the Warren disaster with medicare for all that no one wants. Poverty pimping is a tough job these days.

Democrats are trying to sell us a new game console.

Wait, what?

You mean to tell me that advocating for higher taxes is NOT a winning political strategy?

Has anyone told the clowns running for the Democratic Party nomination?

Wow, what a GENUIS idea!

WTF would a sane person want to THAT for?

Some of the Democratic candidates are advocating for higher taxes to fund Medicare for all. Not a good idea or plan.

If you didn't receive a tax cut, you are:

Making a well-above average, 1%er type of income or

You make so little that you already have zero tax liability, which would make it impossible to give you a tax cut
