More Americans worse off financially than a year ago

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKRC) -- A new Gallup poll finds 42-percent of Americans believe they are worse off financially than they were a year ago. Still, the same poll found that 35-percent believe are better off financially than one year ago and 22-percent of the more than one thousand respondents said their financial situation has stayed the same.

Gallup also says that 55-percent of Americans believe they'll be better off next year

"Despite a sustained, if sluggish, economic recovery that has lasted nearly five years, most Americans report being no better off financially than they were a year ago," Gallup concluded. "As previous years show, Americans are typically more positive about their future compared with their assessments of the past, a testament to the enduring sense of optimism many Americans share about their financial future."
