A record number of American voters say the economy is good to excellent, the highest positive rating since the category's inception in 2001, according to the latest poll released by Quinnipiac University.

The results, according to Quinnipiac:

  • 63 percent say the economy is good to excellent.
  • 34 percent say the economy is not good to poor.
  • 86 percent of Republicans say the economy is good to excellent.
  • 73 percent say their financial position is good to excellent.
  • 23 percent say their financial position is not good to poor.

The gut punch for President Donald Trump is that 45 percent of those surveyed give the credit to former President Barack Obama vs. 43 percent who give Trump the credit.

Roughly 50 percent of those surveyed aged 18-49 give credit to Obama; roughly 50 percent of those aged 50+ give credit of the economy to Trump, according to Quinnipiac.

Every demographic group surveyed says their financial position is positive, however blacks are doing the least great, according to Quinnipiac:

  • 48 percent of blacks say their financial position is good.
  • 8 percent of blacks say their financial position is excellent.
  • 22 percent say their financials are not so good.
  • 20 percent say their financials are poor.

The 20 percent who said poor doubles every demo except for millennials; 13 percent of those 18-34 report their financial position is poor.

The economy comes in at a distant No. 2 (18 percent) in terms of what voters think the priority for 2018 should be; 29 percent overall think healthcare should be the top priority for Trump next year.
