Nearly half of Americans say Washington politics is the biggest threat to economy
“‘We are living at a time of high political discord or polarization in America,’ says Mark Hamrick, Bankrate’s senior economic analyst. ‘One can imagine these concerns reflect their lack of confidence in officials’ ability or willingness to resolve problems.'”
USAGOLD note: The Bankrate survey found that 44% believe that “the political environment in Washington is the biggest threat to the economy over the next six months.” That number is likely to expand as we move closer to the November 2020 election.
