One week after Gallup measured US economic confidence at the highest level on record, just days after Trump gave his now long-forgotten “conciliatory” address to Congress, the mood appears to be souring somewhat not only for regular Americans but also small businesses.  In Gallup’s latest weekly economic confidence reading, it found that Americans’ confidence in the economy returned to its recent levels last week after a record-setting post-recession high the week before. Gallup’s U.S. Economic Confidence Index was +9 for the week ending March 12. This is down from +16 the previous week, and in line with weekly scores recorded throughout February.

In the latest weekly survey, 48% of Americans say the economy is getting better, and 45% say it is getting worse. That compares with 54% and 39%, respectively, the prior week. As a result, the economic outlook component of Gallup’s index fell to +3 from +15. Meanwhile, Americans’ assessments of current economic conditions were largely unchanged. For the week ending March 12, 34% of Americans rated the economy as “excellent” or “good,” and 20% rated it as “poor,” resulting in a +14 current conditions score, roughly where it has been since late January.
