Fox News Poll: 74 percent of Americans say US still in recession
As President Obama starts his sixth year in office, his job ratings remain near record lows and more voters think his policies have hurt rather than helped the economy. And even as voters continue to hold mostly negative views on the economy and the direction of the country, a new Fox News poll finds they see some improvement.
A third of voters say they like both Obama and his policies -- a dramatic drop from 47 percent who felt that way in October 2012. In addition, 62 percent now say they dislike the president’s policies, up from 51 percent the month before his re-election.
Voters aren’t impressed with Obama’s economic policies: while 27 percent think they’ve helped, a 40-percent plurality says they’ve hurt the economy. And another 33 percent don’t think the president’s policies have made much difference either way. . . . .
