A majority of Americans find themselves better off under President Trump than they were four years ago, according to a new poll. 56% of registered voters say they’re better off now, while 32% said they’re worse off, Gallup found in a survey out this week.
The number is a vast improvement compared to 2012 under the Obama administration, when 45 percent of voters said they were better off than in 2008. Trump cheered the findings in a tweet on Thursday.
“The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden). Highest number on record! Pretty amazing!” he wrote.
The poll was conducted between Sept. 14 and 28 before the first presidential debate and Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.
