According to a new Rasmussen Poll, voters think President Trump is responsible for the current booming economy, not Barrack Obama.
Former President Obama took credit for the booming economy in a tweet earlier this week, but voters still tend to think President Trump deserves more of the credit.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters agree the economy has gotten better since Trump was elected president in November 2016. Despite numerous economic indicators to the contrary, 24% say the economy has gotten worse, while 26% feel it has remained about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This Poll comes out after former President Barrack Obama attempted to take credit for the current state of the economy.
Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history. pic.twitter.com/BmdXrxUAUf

President Trump responded calling Obama’s claims a “Con Job”:
….ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
