Fox News Poll: Voters feeling optimistic about 2017

It was a good year for a majority of voters — and they’re feeling optimistic about next year too, according to the latest Fox News Poll.

President Obama’s last year in office was a dramatically better year for voters than his first. Some 53 percent say 2016 was a good year for them. While that’s down a touch from 56 percent last year, it’s a big increase from 34 percent who felt positive at the end of 2009. …

Half of voters (50 percent) will be at least somewhat proud to have Donald Trump as their president. Yet nearly as many, 47 percent, won’t be.

For Barack Obama, 66 percent are proud to have him as their country’s leader and 33 percent aren’t. CONT.
