Republicans sharply more confident in U.S. economy vs world

As President Trump visits Davos, Americans are more confident in the United States' ability to compete with other countries — but not necessarily because of Trump's economic leadership, according to a new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll. The change is mainly because Republicans are more confident than they were in 2011.
