(TNS) While 2020 Democratic presidential contenders try to talk down the economy and the overall state of our country and future while lying their way to the nomination, the fact is most Americans by far aren’t buying into that doom-and-gloom scenario.

In fact, according to a new survey from USA Today (right??), eight of 10 Americans are extremely optimistic about their 2020:
A USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll this month asked Americans if they thought things would get better or worse in their own lives in 2020. By an overwhelming 80% to 11%, they predicted their lives would be better. That optimism stretched across demographic lines, although men had a more positive outlook than women (83% vs. 76%) and Southerners a more positive outlook than Midwesterners (84% vs. 74%).
In follow-up interviews, those surveyed often mentioned the strong economy when asked whatâ€™s ahead for them.
â€œMy lifeâ€™s going pretty well,â€ said Alex Foss, 28, a construction inspector from Lakeland, Florida. â€œIâ€™m under 30, and Iâ€™m making more money each year.â€ He sees fellow millennials in his neighborhood buying homes and starting families.
By about a 3-to-1 ratio (63% vs. 22%), those surveyed also predicted things would get better next year for their communities.
Okay, but who’s getting the credit for all of this optimism? Democrats…right?
Not hardly. USA Today adds:
Asked about the countryâ€™s prospects, respondents tended to mention President Donald Trump.
Amy Locklear, 45, a retired teacher and Army veteran from Maxton, North Carolina, said sheâ€™s optimistic as long as Trump stays in office. â€œHe gets things done,â€ she said. â€œI just want someone who does what theyâ€™ve promised.â€
That’s a great point because it doesn’t get mentioned enough: As often as the Garbage Party and their Commie-sycophant supporters claim Trump lies all the time, he’s the one president in most of our lifetimes who has a really great habit of keeping the promises he made on the campaign trail.
As Rush Limbaugh has said in the past, in Trump Americans may have actually elected the most honest president in our history.
The Washington Times adds:
President Trumpâ€™s economy is a resounding success â€” so far.
Economic growth has averaged 2.6 percent â€” the Bush and Obama presidencies together posted less than 2 percent. Historically low unemployment is promoting greater racial and gender equality.
Wages are advancing at about a 3.7 percent annual pace after falling to 2.5 percent during the final years of the Obama presidency. Gains are increasingly flowing to lower income Americans and minorities, as blue collar industries like construction and maintenance face shortages of workers. The presidentâ€™s apprenticeship program is opening new high-paying opportunities across the economy for non-college bound youth.
Last week, White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro predicted that 2020 will be phenomenally successful for the United States and the American people, based on several factors.
USA Features News reported:
Narraro predicted near 3 percentÂ GDP growth, Dow 32,000, and historic job and wage growth in one of the â€œgreatest years in U.S. history economically.â€
â€œThis economy under President Donald J. Trump is setting up beautifully for a economic boom and a bull market,â€ Navarro, the White House trade and manufacturing policy director,Â told â€œThe Cats Roundtableâ€ on 970 AM-N.Y.
Navarro noted that there are four economic pillars that will allow the president to build further on his successes: Continued cheap energy, deregulation, tax cuts, and trade deals that are more fair to the U.S.
Thanks to President Trump and (most) Republicans, we have the best economic and opportunity outlook in decades. We need to remember that when we go to the polls in 11 months.
