The majority of Republicans have a rosier picture of America now than they did four years ago — because of their confidence in President Trump, a new poll found.
Three in four GOP-identified voters who responded to a nationwide CBS News poll said that the nation is better off than it was in 2016.
When asked why they believed the nation was better off, 82 percent cited their faith in Trump and 70 percent gave the state of the economy as the reason.
Seventy percent said it was because Democrats are no longer in power and 64 percent cited their own family’s finances.
Overall, just 35 percent of registered voters who were polled said the country is better off now than four years ago.
The poll was conducted between Aug. 19-21 with a sample of 2,226 registered voters across the country.
