In economic views, Americans believe inflation outweighs jobs

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

This week’s positive jobs report and the stronger employment rate aren’t entirely lost on Americans — just outweighed when they rate the economy.

Many do say the job market is good and that jobs have increased over the last year – but it’s still inflation driving views, and even those who say the job market is ok still don’t rate the economy well. Americans are basing this on personal experience: two-thirds say higher prices have been difficult or even a hardship, and now forcing many to make cutbacks.

And while the White House has often stressed the jobs number, people’s focus on prices continues to bring negative ratings for both the economy and the president’s handling of it.
