Read the full USA Today/Gallup poll

Further confirming the grim mood of Americans about the economy, a USA Today/Gallup poll said 8 in 10 of those surveyed already believe the U.S. is in an economic slowdown or an actual recession, (46 percent said slowdown, 33 percent said recession and 12 percent said depression). The poll had a 2 point margin of error. This survey conforms with others we reported yesterday.

Today’s Gallup daily tracking poll on consumer confidence paimts a similar picture.
