The US economy is performing well overall, but many Americans do not feel the positive effects. CNN conducted a quiz asking readers if they feel better off under President Joe Biden or former President Donald Trump. While a majority of respondents feel better off now, some mentioned that their personal situation has not improved. Concerns voiced by readers include uncertainty and chaos during Trump’s presidency, as well as worries about rising prices, crime, and the loss of personal freedoms. Factors shaping readers’ views include the stock market’s performance, wages outpacing inflation, and concerns about inflation, safety, and social issues.
