The Financial Times, citing a survey it commissioned, quoted more Americans as having faith in Donald Trump than in President Joe Biden to manage the US economy.
According to a poll conducted by the FT/University of Michigan Ross School of Business, 42% of Americans believed Trump would be the more responsible steward of the economy, while 31% favored Biden and 21% declined to make a decision.
Initiated in November, the monthly polling series seeks to gauge voter sentiment regarding the economy prior to the presidential election.
The FT reported that Trump’s performance well in this month’s survey persists despite respondents expressing certain improvements in their personal financial situations and their overall economic outlook.
The online survey of 1,006 registered electors in the United States was conducted by Republican polling firm North Star Opinion Research and Democratic strategist Global Strategy Group from February 2 to 5. The margin of error was 3.1 percentage points, either positive or negative.
