Most swing state voters are feeling glum about the economic recovery and don’t expect it to improve any time soon.

That’s the key takeaway from a new survey of the electorate in eight states likely to determine the 2016 presidential race. The poll paints a grim picture of popular sentiment in those states — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia — with 61% describing the economy as “not good” or “poor” and two-thirds saying they expect the situation to remain the same or worsen over the next year. And strikingly, 40% still believe the United States is in a recession.
