Trump Gleeful on Poll's Record-High Numbers for Economic Optimism

Trump touts a poll that's terrible for him
"Trump's policies are helping the nation's economy, 37 percent of voters say, as 29 percent say his policies are hurting the economy and 30 percent say these policies are not making much difference", the Quinnipiac news release says.
The catch? That same poll shows that voters credit former President Barack Obama with the country's economic success - not Trump.
"That is the highest number ever recorded by this poll", the president tweeted.
President Donald Trump acknowledges applause after speaking at the American Farm Bureau Federation annual convention Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, in Nashville, Tenn.
Approximately 37 percent of voters said they believed Trump's economic policies are "helping" the USA economy, while 29 percent believed Trump's policies were "hurting" it.
Frequently cited by journalists, public officials and researchers, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll regularly surveys residents in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Iowa, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and nationwide about political races, state and national elections, and issues of public concern, such as schools, taxes, transportation, municipal services and the environment.
On two other qualities, whether Trump is intelligent or strong, voters agreed that he is both.
The poll, taken January 5-9, from Quinnipiac included 1,106 voter opinions and has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points. While almost 70 per cent of voters feel Trump is not "level headed", 53 per cent feel the president is "intelligent" compared to the 44 per cent who said he's not "intelligent" and the 28 per cent who said he's "level headed".
Moreover, 39 percent of voters graded Trump's first year in office as a failing "F", compared to only 16 percent who gave him an "A". So, once President Trump started campaigning on these policies about lowering taxes, about rolling back regulations, there was an anticipation that started to creep up and that started to force businesses to unleash the purse strings.
In a series of tweets a day after the book was released, Trump lashed out, saying "throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart" and later adding that he's a "very stable genius".
The November 21 national poll found 60% of USA women say they've been sexually harassed; Trump job approval still stuck below 40%.
