This chart shows Americans' faith in the economy soaring since Trump's election

13 January 2018

President Donald Trump on Thursday morning tweeted about a recent Quinnipiac poll that found 66% of U.S. voters thought the economy was in good or excellent shape, but the same poll also gave him low marks for mental fitness.

Voters' perception of the economy has never been higher, a new poll found.

According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, 49 percent of Americans said Obama deserves the kudos, down from 67 percent in March 2017.

Meanwhile, 33 percent said they saw the economy as "not so good" or "poor".

Now, almost a year into Trump's tenure at the White House, almost six-in-10 voters in Georgia hold an unfavorable view of the president.

Trump's policies are helping the nation's economy, 37 percent of voters say, as 29 percent say his policies are hurting the economy and 30 percent say these policies are not making much difference.

The Quinnipiac University Poll conducts nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Colorado as a public service and for research.

Even worse, an unbelievable 57 percent of respondents said Trump is "not fit for office" and 69 percent said he isn't "level-headed". 56% of respondents grade his first year in office as an F or D, the same percentage of his disapproval ratings.

Trump's job approval rating was 36 percent, the same score in a poll taken shortly after his inauguration.
