Residents Optimistic on State, National Economy; Optimism Very High Among NH Republicans 2/22/18
New Hampshire residents remain optimistic about the future of the NH and US economies. Republicans are very optimistic about the national economy while Democrats have become slightly more optimistic since October. NH residents are divided about the U.S. economy's long-term outlook; optimism is at an all-time high among Republicans but at an all-time low among Democrats. A record number of Republicans (78%) say they are better off than they were a year ago, while less than third of Independents and Democrats agree.
