PostSubject: Standard of living soars to ‘best of decade’ says new Gallup poll   Tue Sep 12, 2017 10:50 pm

“Americans’ ratings of their standard of living are on pace to be the best in Gallup’s 10-year tracking history,” writes Jim Norman, a Gallup analyst who reveals that two-thirds of the public now says their living circumstances are getting better, 80 percent of the nation say they are “satisfied” with their current standard of living, and the pollster’s complex but revealing “well-being index” now stands at 54, a record high.



“This year’s rise in the overall index is driven by an increase in Americans’ outlook for their standard of living. The percentage of Americans saying their standard of living is getting better has risen from 62 percent in 2016 to 64 percent so far this year, with a corresponding drop in the percentage saying it is getting worse, from 22 percent to 19 percent. The strongly positive expectations Americans now have for their standard of living is a far cry from the situation in 2008, when as many thought their situation was getting worse as thought it was improving,” Mr. Norman said.

There’s a small but interesting partisan divide. In 2016, 56 percent of Republicans and 68 percent of Democrats perceived that their standard of living was “getting better.” In 2017, 68 percent of Republicans and 62 percent of Democrats cite improvement. The findings are based on a Gallup tracking poll that has surveyed 578,600 U.S. adults in the past decade.
