Sept. 8, 2022: Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters say the United States is currently in a recession. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that just 19% say the U.S. is not in a recession, and 24% are not sure.
The survey also found that only 24% of voters say the U.S. economy is getting better. Fifty-six percent (56%) say that it is getting worse, and 18% say it is staying about the same.
The survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on August 23-25, 2022. Fieldwork for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of registered voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 2.8 percentage points.
