Amid skyrocketing prices for fuel and many consumer products, such as groceries, voters remain about evenly divided on the question of whether their own personal finances are getting better or worse.
That's according to a poll by Scott Rasmussen.
According to Rasmussen: " 31% of voters nationwide say their own personal finances are getting better while 26% say worse. These figures are almost identical to the results from a month ago."
The poll finds a large gap in perception of economic well being between the highly-educated and the rest of the nation.
According to Rasmussen:
- Among those with advanced degrees, 63% say their finances are getting better and just 10% say worse.
- Among those with a bachelor’s degree, the numbers are much more evenly divided: 31% better and 25% worse.
- Among those without a college degree, 22% believe their finances are getting better while 29% say the opposite.
