Curtin says U.S. consumers are split on whether Clinton or Trump would improve economic outcomes

According to an August poll by the Surveys of Consumers, respondents were almost evenly split on whether a Clinton or Trump victory would be better for the economy (30% and 31%), but the most popular answer was that the results would make no difference at all (39%). Richard Curtin said, “Although consumers increasingly expect a Clinton victory, consumers are nearly equally split on whether either candidate would actually improve overall economic conditions or their own personal finances.”
