Trump Not Feeling Economic Love

In Defying the Odds, we discuss the tax and economics issue in the 2016 campaign.  The update  -- recently published --includes a chapter on the 2018 midterms. and explains why the Trump tax cut backfired on Republicans.

At AP, Josh Boak and Hannah Fingerhut report on a survey from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Even though most people think the economy is doing well, fewer approve of Trump’s handling of the economy. Most do not think his trade policies are benefiting  them. And only 17% say they got a tax cut.
