FT Poll Shows Trump Leading Biden by 11 Points on Economy

A survey commissioned by the Financial Times found that more Americans trust President Joe Biden to handle the US economy than Donald Trump. According to the FT/University of Michigan Ross School of Business poll, 31% of Americans chose Biden as the better steward for the economy, while 42% said they trusted neither candidate and only 21% said they felt Trump would be better.

The monthly polling series, first conducted in November, aimed to track voter sentiment on the economy in the lead-up to the presidential election. Despite voters reporting some improvements in their personal financial circumstances and their outlook for the overall economy, Trump’s strength in this month’s survey came as a surprise.

The online poll of 1,006 registered voters across the US was conducted Feb. 2-Feb. 5 by Global Strategy Group and North Star Opinion Research. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
