And it just got a whole lot worse. . .
New polling out from Gallup shows that “59% of Americans say they are better off financially than they were a year ago, the highest level in the history of Gallup polling”:
Gallup: 59% of Americans say they are better off financially than they were a year ago, the highest level in the history of Gallup polling.
Gallup has never recorded this level in over 40 years – even the dot com boom was 58%.

More from Gallup’s “Mood of the Nation” poll that’s titled, “Record-High Optimism on Personal Finances in U.S.”:
These data come from Gallup’s annual Mood of the Nation survey, conducted Jan. 2-15. The survey was completed after months of historically low levels of unemployment and as the Dow Jones Industrial Average neared the 30,000 mark for the first time.
The current 59% of Americans who say they are better off financially than they were a year ago is essentially tied for the all-time high of 58% in January 1999. That was recorded during the dot-com boom, with conditions similar to the current state of the economy — a stock market rocketing to then-record highs and unemployment at multidecade lows — though GDP growth was higher at that time.
Even worse for Dems? “74% of Americans believe they will be better off in a year”:
Notable: 74% of Americans believe they will be better off in a year, the highest percent since 1977, according to a new @Gallup poll

Even Dems are optimistic:
Even 60% of *Democrats* agree their personal finances are going to be better off within the next year.
Even their own voters aren't buying the Democrats Doomsday rhetoric.
