 Positive Ratings of Personal Finances Remain Below 40%; 26% Express Job Insecurity 

UTICA, New York - Eight months after passage of the economic stimulus bill in February, likely voters are feeling a bit more positive about U.S. economic policy than they did in early March. However, there is no change in voters' assessment of their personal finances and job security; they are a bit more pessimistic that their children will have a better life than they have had.

Those are among the results of Zogby Interactive surveys of likely voters conducted from October 23-26 and from March 2-5 of this year. The most recent poll included 3,544 likely voters and had a margin of error of +/-1.7%. The March poll numbered 3,365 likely voters and had the same margin of error.

While we found improvement in October, the survey still shows only 23% giving positive ratings of excellent or good, and a majority (51%) saying poor. Democrats made up a significant number of those moving to a positive rating, going from 32% in March to 42% in October. There was no significant change among Republicans or Independents.
