Voters’ Attitudes on the Economy

A summary of national surveys explores public attitudes related to the economy.

The economy remains the top concern for Americans. Despite significant policy successes by Democrats over the past two years, Republicans continue to enjoy an advantage on who voters trust on the economy. This research project by the Center for American Progress Action Fund explores voters’ attitudes around the economy, including government’s role in the economy and perceptions of the two parties on the issue.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone. A full list of supporters is available here. American Progress would like to acknowledge the many generous supporters who make our work possible.
