Poll: 75% now very or somewhat worried about double-dip recession

Among those concerned, 46 percent said they were “very” worried and 29 percent said they were “somewhat” worried.

The survey underscores the influential role economic issues are expected to play in the November elections, particularly in the presidential race.

With the fallout from the 2008 economic crash still fresh in voters’ minds, just 18 percent of those surveyed said they are not very worried about another recession. Only 4 percent are not worried at all.

The level of concern about a second recession was most pronounced among middle-income and lower-income voters.
