Poll: Nearly 70 Percent of Americans Believe Economy in Bad Shape

What did they expect of all the government intervention?


Never mind a stock market breaking records and an unemployment rate inching down: Americans still think this economy stinks.

That's according to a new CNN poll out Friday, which found almost 70 percent of respondents think the economy is in bad shape, while only 32 percent think things are good. More than half of Americans don't think conditions will improve next year, according to the poll.
