Gallup: Economic confidence flat

People in the U.S. have had a static view of the economy over the last two months, according to data from Gallup.

The polling company said Tuesday that its economic confidence index came in at -15 last week, making it nine weeks in a row the index has been between -14 and -17.

Those scores are a bit better than the findings from around March, when the index fluctuated between -18 and -20.

They’re also not as good as around a year ago, when the index hit the highest point its been since 2008, but better than the plummeting scores sparked by last year’s government shutdown.

Gallup also found that people are generally equally negative about the current economic condition, and whether the economy is improving.
