Americans' Views of Economy Unchanged After London Bombings

No signs of significant change in recent months
July 13, 2005 by Frank Newport Gallup

Americans' views of the economy remain fairly steady -- and weak. On balance, more Americans perceive the economy as getting worse than getting better, and only a little more than a third are willing to rate the current economy as excellent or good. Just about 4 out of 10 workers say it's a good time to find a quality job. These readings of consumer confidence have not changed materially over the last month or two and did not change significantly as a result of the London bombings of last Thursday. The broad picture shows that the American public's feelings about the economy are more positive now than they were in 2003, but economic optimism for the first half of this year has been well below its average level last year.
