As parts of the country slowly emerge from coronavirus lockdown, economic confidence has slowed from April’s rapid descent, dropping just one point to 93.7 in May. But this is the lowest finding in six years of surveying and six points below the April 2014 baseline.

Enthusiasm about the economy started to grow immediately following Donald Trump’s election as president in November 2016 and jumped to 147.8 in January 2020 and then began its decline in February.
