British People Still Negative About The Economy PDF Print E-mail
Written by TNS   
11 Feb 2013

Only 4% of the British public think that the economy is doing better than it was 12 months ago while more than half (57%) feel that the economy is actually doing worse than a year ago.

A similar negative pattern can be seen in people's views about the future of the economy - although not to quite the same degree. Four in ten people (43%) think that the economy will get worse over the next 12 months while only one in ten believe that it will improve (11%).

Perceptions about the future prospects of the economy do seem to be coloured by political allegiance. Only 22% of Conservative supporters felt that the economy will get worse over the next 12 months compared to more than twice as many Labour supporters (46%). This would indicate that Labour's message that the government's current policies will cause a deeper recession are getting through to their supporter base.
