Florida Voters Upbeat About Economy

Fifty-four percent (54%) of Florida voters rate the U.S. economy as good or excellent. A ScottRasmussen.com survey found that 32% rate the economy as just fair while only 12% say it is in poor shape.

Thirty-six percent (36%) believe the economy is getting better while 29% say it is getting worse.  Men tend to think the economy is getting better while women believe it is getting worse (see crosstab results).

The survey was conducted on from January 30 through February 1, 2019. Most of the interviews were completed prior to the strong report on job creation Friday morning. Overall, the results suggest that Floridians are more optimistic about the economy than the national average.

Data released earlier showed that the president’s job approval rating in Florida is at 43%. See the report from our broadcast partner, WPEC (CBS) in West Palm Beach.

Fifty-two percent (52%) of Florida voters rate their own personal finances as good or excellent. Thirty-three percent (33%) believe their finances are getting better while 16% say the opposite. Men, by a 4-to-1 margin, say their finances are getting better. Women are evenly divided.
