A survey conducted by the Financial Times found that more Americans trust President Donald Trump to handle the US economy than Joe Biden, despite improvements in their personal financial circumstances and outlook for the overall economy. The monthly polling series, which began in November, aims to track voter sentiment on the economy before the presidential election.
The online poll of 1,006 registered voters across the US was conducted by Global Strategy Group and North Star Opinion Research between February 2nd and 5th. The margin of error for this survey is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
According to the FT/University of Michigan Ross School of Business poll, 42% of Americans said they felt Trump would be the better steward for the economy, while 31% chose Biden and 21% said they trusted neither candidate.
