American Economic Optimism Surges under Trump!

The economic optimism of Americans is higher than the President’s approval ratings.

People would rather prosper under a President they don’t like than become impoverished under a more “ideal” President.

NBC reports, “American optimism about the economy hits an all-time high in new CNBC survey.
