A new poll conducted by the largest social network for African-Americans, BlackPlanet.com, and NewsOne.com, shows that 88 percent of African-Americans believe the economy has been better under President Obama than former president George W. Bush.
This stands in sharp contrast to a recent Bloomberg poll released last week that showed 44 percent of Americans believe that the economy was better during George Bush’s presidency.
Many will point to Obama inheriting the Bush economic mess as a reason to defend the current president. Former president Bush left office at a time when the financial crisis began. But Obama has inherited the tail-end of the beginning, middle, and no one knows when the end will come to this trying time in American history. No one knows if we are even near it.
Only 12 percent of BlackPlanet/NewsOne users believed the economy was better under former president Bush.
Over 1,100 African-Americans were polled in this study.
