Few Americans believe the economy will be much better in a year, a Rasmussen survey shows.

It’s a mood that hearkens back to the days  of President Jimmy Carter days; only 25 percent of Americans responding to the poll see economic improvement over the next 12 months. The deeper significance, Rasmussen says: U.S. short-term confidence now matches long-term confidence. And they’re both at new lows, Rasmussen reports.

Almost 48 percent of respondents think the economy will be weaker in a year, the poll says, while 18 percent think it will stay the same.

The survey of 1,000 American adults was conducted on March 1 and 2, Rasmussen says.
