(POLL) 41% say personal finances got worse in latter half of 2023

By a 24-point margin, more Americans say their personal finances have gotten worse than better, and only a quarter say they expect their situation to improve in the months ahead.

That’s according to Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds that 41% of American adults say their personal financial situation has gotten worse in the past six months, while just 17% say their finances have gotten better.

Thirty-eight percent (38%) say their financial situation has stayed about the same.

Twenty-five percent (25%) say they expect their personal financial situation to get better in the next six months, while 32% expect it to get worse and 36% think their financial situation will stay about the same.

Twenty-eight percent (28%) say that in the past six months they have been late at least once in making a major monthly payment, such as their rent or mortgage, car payment, or utility bills, while 65% say they haven’t missed any payments.
