“Forty-five percent of those surveyed in a Bloomberg National Poll say they are better off than at the beginning of 2009 compared with 36 percent who say they are worse off,” reports Bloomberg’s David J. Lynch. “In March, poll respondents split almost evenly on that question after having been decidedly negative since the aftermath of the worst recession in seven decades. … The poll, conducted June 15-18, contains more unlikely cheer for the president, with larger numbers of respondents saying their household income is higher than a year ago. While 44 percent say they are treading water, the better off outnumbered the worse off by 28 percent to 22 percent.”
