Swing State SurveyJun 4, 2015
The Economic Innovation Group (EIG) released a new survey that examines economic sentiment among 2016 likely voters in key battleground states. Survey results indicate that over five years into the official recovery, a significant percentage of swing state voters believe the U.S. economy is still in a recession and that good jobs are difficult to find. Voters are looking beyond Washington for economic solutions, with a clear majority in agreement that entrepreneurs and investors should take on a greater role in providing innovative policy solutions to help solve our economic challenges. The survey also found resounding bipartisan support for encouraging the growth of entrepreneurship and for new incentives aimed at bringing private investment to economically distressed communities.
