Americans who say their finances haven’t improved mostly blame Donny


Seventy-two percent of the 1,001 respondents surveyed say their personal finances haven’t ismproved from two years ago. Personal finance includes not just income, but also the ability to pay back loans including credit card debt, student loans and mortgages.

Americans earning less than $30,000 per year are the least likely to experience any positive changes. In this group, 78% report that their financial situation hasn’t improved and 27% said it’s actually worse than it was two years ago. In contrast, more than half of people earning over $75,000 annually said they feel better about their financial situation.

“The broad economic data points may be pointing to improvement, but only 4 out of 10 of the people that we surveyed said that their situation had improved in the past two years, which means that there’s more work to do in the sense of having other people participate in the economic expansion in a satisfying way,” Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst for Bankrate.com, told Yahoo Finance.
