Poll: Voters Give U.S. Economic Policy A Failing Grade

UTICA, N.Y. – Less than a third of voters believe that their children will have a better life than they do, according to a new Zogby Interactive Survey.

Almost two-thirds of voters say that business has not done enough to create new jobs and nearly three-quarters believe that the federal government should do more. Over half of those responding to the Feb. 22-24 survey give U.S. economic policy a poor grade.

“While some economists are saying the economy has improved, voters don’t seem to be feeling it,” said pollster John Zogby. “Most disturbing is that half of voters have lost faith that their children will have a better life than they have had. It certainly implies an acceptance of a new norm of high unemployment and limited economic mobility.”
