All UNH Survey Center Polls


A majority of Mainers say that they are worse off financially than a year ago and nearly two-thirds say they have struggled to afford basic necessities in the past year. Mainers are generally pessimistic about the state and national economies and nearly two-thirds expect that the country is already in a recession or will be in one within twelve months. Responses differ considerably based on household income, with those with low to middling incomes more pessimistic about the economy and more likely to report hardship in their personal finances.
