Donald Trump likes to claim he would be better at managing the economy than Hillary Clinton, because he is a businessman. But economists disagree. The National Association of Business Economists (NABE) queried 414 of their members between July 20th and August 2nd to find out which presidential candidate they thought would best manage the nation's economy.
It turns out that a significant majority (55%) said electing Clinton would be best for the U.S. economy, while only 14% said Trump would be best -- a huge 41 point gap. Trump may be able to fool his teabagger base into thinking he could effectively run the economy, but the economists are not fooled. They know his economic policies would benefit only the rich and the corporations, while hurting other Americans.
