PRINCETON, NJ -- The percentage of Americans who say the U.S. economy is getting better remains very low, at 10%, while only 17% are willing to rate the economy as "excellent" or "good." Both of these measurements are little changed from previous days' readings in Gallup Poll Daily tracking. -- Frank Newport
For the Gallup Poll Daily tracking survey, Gallup is interviewing no fewer than 1,000 U.S. adults nationwide each day during 2008. The economic questions analyzed in this report are asked of a random half-sample of respondents. The results reported here are based on combined data from 1,506 interviews conducted May 14-16, 2008. For results based on this sample, the maximum margin of sampling error is ±3 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.To provide feedback or suggestions about how to improve Gallup.com, please e-mail email@example.com.
