The Nation

May 23, 1986

More Americans now regard the Republican Party as better able than the Democratic Party to keep the nation prosperous than at any previous time during the last 35 years, according to a Gallup poll. Doubtless spurred by optimism about the economy, as well as their own financial prospects, 51% of the public currently cite the GOP, the party in power, as the "party of prosperity," while 33% name the Democratic Party and 16% see little difference between the two or are undecided. The current findings mark the first time since 1951 that a majority of Americans has singled out the Republican Party over the Democratic Party as superior in this regard in a Gallup poll.
