Although CNN commentators seem to think the economy isn't substantially different since President Trump took office, a new poll by the leftist new network shows Americans are feeling confident with our economy. 

For the first time in almost 20 years, Americans gave the United States economy its highest ranking in a new CNN poll.

In fact, 76 percent say the United States today is "very good or somewhat good," an increase over last year's 67 percent. The last time Americans felt the economy was this decent was in February 2001 when 80 percent felt the United States was "very good or somewhat good."

97 percent of Republicans believe economic conditions are good, compared to 75 percent of Independents and 62 percent of Democrats. All three demographics have trended upward compared to the same poll conducted in August. During that time period, 91 percent of Republicans, 62 percent of independents and 47 percent of Democrats said the economy was doing well.

Of those who were polled, 68 percent believe the economy will still be growing strong this time next year. That's the most positive outlook in a CNN poll since December 2003. 63 percent said things are good now and will continue to be good next year, while nine percent believe the economy is great now but will take a nosedive next year.

How many more polls do we need to see before Democrats realize that Americans across the board are feeling better about the economy? How many more unemployment records does President Trump need to set before Democrats admit that he's doing something worth noting? 

The left can continue to say policies, like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, hasn't made an impact. The data says otherwise. And the 2020 election will seal the deal.
