Gallup: Americans' Confidence in Economy Ties 2008 Low

Confidence in the American economy has equaled its record low for 2008, with 88 percent of Americans saying the economy is getting worse, according to Gallup. Nine percent of Americans said they thought the economy was improving.

The previous low was set earlier this month. Confidence had risen slightly since then, with Gallup's last poll indicating 85 percent of Americans thought the economy was getting worse, before falling again today.

The economy consistently polls as the issue voters see as most important, especially among Democratic voters.

Gallup surveyed over 1,400 Americans on May 25, 27, and 28 for the poll.
