Well, if you live in DC you do! Only in Washington, D.C. did a majority of the people say they believe the economy was getting better not worse in the first half of this year, according to a survey released today by Gallup.
In not one state did more than 41 percent of those surveyed tell Gallup they believed the economy was getting better.
From January through June, Gallup asked 87,634 American adults in all 50 states and the District of Columbia this question: “Right now, do you think the economic conditions in the country are getting better or getting worse?”
In D.C., 60 percent said the economy was getting better and 31 percent said it was getting worse.
In 44 states, fewer than 40 percent of the people said they believed the economy was getting better. The smallest percentage was in West Virginia, where only 24 percent said the economy was getting better and 72 percent said it was getting worse.
How out of touch are these people? No wonder DC folks think the economy is getting better – they’re stealing and spending all our money!
