Obama Not Getting Credit He Says He Deserves for Great Economy

Back in mid-October, former President Barack Obama tried to take credit for the booming economy, urging people to “remember who started it.”

But, Americans aren’t buying that argument, by a 2-to-1 margin.

The latest Harvard-Harris poll asked people who they thought was responsible for the current strong economy.

A full 47% said it’s due to President Trump’s efforts, while only 21% credited it to Obama.
