People in the U.S. report making more money now than they did five years ago, according to a new Gallup poll.

The telephone poll, conducted August 3-7 with a random sampling of 521 adults age 18 or older finds:

  • 68 percent are making a lot more or a little more than they were five years ago;
  • 20 percent are making a lot less or a little less;
  • 11 percent are making the same amount.

The results show improvement in pay for those who took the poll, since the last time Gallup asked the question in 2013.

At that time, 58 percent said they were making more and 28 percent said they were making less.

Based on how many hours worked, full-time workers reported being paid better than five years ago.

  • 74 percent of those who work 40 hours or more said they are making more;
  • 46 percent of those who work part-time said they are making more.

Based on how long workers had been with their current employer, every ranking showed that those who took the poll have seen their pay rise.

  • 67 percent of those who have held their job less than five years said they were paid more;
  • 70 percent of those who have held their job five to 10 years said they were paid more;
  • 66 percent of those who have held their job more than 10 years said they were being paid better.

A poll by CNN in July showed that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump supporters feel worse off — 61 percent — compared to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's supporters — 47 percent — feel that way.
