Americans ‘Clap’ Back: Voters’ Confidence In Personal Finances Hits Record Highs

Democrats displayed cold indifference to, refused to clap for, and even walked out on the new jobs and higher wages that President Trump touted during his State of the Union address.

It's no wonder Pelosi ripped up the speech: between the Iowa caucus debacle, the President's surging approval ratings, and today's impeachment exoneration vote, this week is "frustrating a lot of Democrats."

And for Democrats denying America's undeniable blue-collar boom, it just got even worse.

According to the latest Gallup survey, Americans’ views of their own personal finances are hitting new record highs:

  • 59% of Americans agree they are better off financially today than they were a year ago, tied with the record high set in 1999. 
  • 74% of Americans predict they will be better off financially next year, the highest level ever recorded since Gallup began asking the question in 1977.

It looks like even Democrat voters aren't buying the doomsday rhetoric their party leaders are spouting: 60% of registered Democrats believe their personal finances will be better off in the next year.

Moreover, new data released Wednesday suggest private payrolls surged far higher than expected with the best monthly gain in five years.

This should all be something to celebrate, but Democrats don't want to talk about these great wins for the American people. Instead, they’re choosing to campaign on taking away private health insurance plans, raising taxes on middle-class families, obliterating American energy manufacturing, giving away free health care to illegal immigrants, and instituting open borders—and they’re on the brink of nominating a self-avowed socialist as their standard bearer.

As an exasperated James Carville said about Democrats' strategy: "C'mon, people!"
