People in the U.S. see the economy as subpar, according to new data from Gallup.
Gallup found that people were equally negative about where the economy is right now, and whether it's getting better or worse – the two components of the index.
The -15 recorded last week is just a touch up from the low for the year, a -20 recorded in March.
But it's also much higher than last year's low, a -39 recorded around the time of October's government shutdown, and much lower than last year's high of -3.
