Thirty-three percent of American adults now believe the U.S. economy is getting worse, while just 31 percent believe it is getting better. That reflects a marked decline in confidence from a month ago when 36 percent thought things were getting better and just 26 percent said worse.

It’s also the first time that data released by the Job Creators Network and ScottRasmussen.com has shown more people with a negative view of the economic future than a positive one. These numbers are based on a four-week rolling average of weekly polls.

Other data from the surveys confirms the general decline in economic confidence. Just 46 percent now rate the economy as good or excellent. That’s down from 52 percent one week ago and 55 percent last fall.

Confidence is holding somewhat more steady when it comes to personal finances.

Forty-eight percent rate their own personal finances as good or excellent. That’s down just 3 points from one month ago.
