Voters' Economic Outlook Improves But Concerns Over Biden's Age Persist


A new surveyfrom CBS News/YouGov has found that, “Americans' economic outlook continues to improve, even if it still isn't great.”

  • CBS notes: “The number who see economic growth, or even a boom coming, has risen for the second consecutive month; the number who fear a recession is down again. Ratings of the current economy are at their highest level in over two years; they've also been trending up, albeit slowly and are still mired in negative territory.”
  • The survey also notes that President Biden's, "rating for handling that economy have also edged back up. Though still net-negative, it's now as high as it's been since 2022. It's not unusual for those measures to be at least somewhat related."
  • Negatively for Biden however, "though neither Biden nor the Republican frontrunner Donald Trump fare especially well on views about their respective cognitive health, Biden does much worse by comparison," with only 32% of voters believing Biden would finish a second term.
