“Optimism about the economy has taken a nosedive among Republicans. But the economy did not drive the change. The presidential election did,” the New York Times reports.
“After President Trump’s loss to former Vice President Joe Biden, more than 40 percent of Republicans who were polled for The New York Times said they expected their family to be worse off financially in a year’s time, up from 4 percent in October. Democrats expressed a rise in optimism — though not as sharp as the change in Republican sentiment.”
