Your inference on pills is inaccurate, as are the polls themselves. They don't reflect reality. Bookmakers want as many bets to be placed as possible, on both sides of course.  Your household statistic isn't sn accurate measure of the broad U.S. economy. People in the middle class are recovering slower, but they will continue to benefit, and in increasing numbers.  This recovery has accelerated in the past 20 months.  It's Donald's time. Midterms will give a preview. Finito...have a good one. Bye.

The polls on average were off by about 1 percent in the national election in terms of the popular vote. Any one poll by itself can be quite off. But aggregators are very acurate. Such as fivethirtyeight.com. They gave Trump a 28 percent chance of winning. Right now it shows him and the Republicans way behind.

 

As for the economy. One of the major tax cut promises was the businesses would increase investment. They haven't. Not only haven't they, they don't plan to either for the most part. Business owners have been queried about their plans for the future. Overwhelmingly no plans to increase investment.

 

Liberals predicted that the increased funds made available to corporations by tax cuts would go overwhelmingly to stock buybacks. The same as happened during the Bush adminstration. Those damned liberals turned out to be exactly right.

You continue to demonstrate your lack of understanding about polls.  If they didn't reflect reality, marketing firms wouldn't be spending tens of thousands of dollars to conduct them.  They even come with confidence factors and margins of error - that means we know how likely the poll is to be accurate.  Statistics isn't voodoo - it's a verifiable science.

Supposing, for the sake of argument, that what you say is true.  Why then, is Trump so deeply unpopular at a time when your economic projection suggests that people should be at least satisfied, and at a time when the unemployment rate is at an all time low?

 

It’s the economy, stupid? Not for Trump.

 

"Only one president with an unemployment rate as low as what it is under Trump was more unpopular: Harry S. Truman in the early 1950s. And the average approval rating for a president with an unemployment rate 4.3 percent or lower over the entire span was more than 55 percent. So Trump's approval rating is 20 percentage points lower than the average for a president with his unemployment rate."
