Americans Say They’re Better Off Since Obama Took Office
A plurality of Americans now say they are better off than they were when President Barack Obama was inaugurated, providing a surprising lift to Obama’s re- election campaign despite troublesome economic news.
Forty-five percent of those surveyed in a Bloomberg National Poll say they are better off than at the beginning of 2009 compared with 36 percent who say they are worse off.
So, I went to their methodology (Attachment: Poll Results), and once again an idiot can figure out that these are push polls.
13% polled are under 25.
22% are under 30.
So, they are better off than they were 3 years ago when they were either in high school, college, or working at the local deli smelling the cheese to see if it went bad.
45% are unmarried.
Pretty hard to fug up your finances when you have no dependents.
64% did not have children living with them.
44% did not work full time.
29% were minorities.
36% had a household income below 50K
