Two and a half years and things have gotten worse, far worse under Barry:
An exclusive Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage poll shows that only 13.4 percent of voters still feel confident about the economy, while a stunning 61 percent describe themselves as either “alarmed” or “somewhat alarmed.”
Another 22.3 percent describe themselves as “uncertain” regarding how the current economy will affect them and their families.
Perhaps most worrisome for the Obama administration: Swing voters appear to have lost faith in President Barack Obama’s performance on the economy. Only 35 percent of them somewhat approve or approve of Obama’s economic job performance, compared with 58 percent who either somewhat disapprove or disapprove.
The survey results, released today, give the strongest indication to date that wild stock-market gyrations on Wall Street and dismal economic growth have done serious — perhaps lasting — damage to consumer confidence.
