The vast majority of Americans, 84%, think the current economic conditions were inherited and not caused by President Barack Obama, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll to be released today.
Further, the majority of respondents don’t believe Obama will be viewed as responsible for the economy’s state until much later in his term. Asked at what point Obama will be “mostly responsible for the country’s economic conditions,” 25% said in one to two years, 18% said in two to three years, and 23% said in more than three years.
Just 2% said Obama would shoulder the responsibility in his first six months in office, and 13% said in the first year.
