A majority of business economists in a new survey said Hillary Clinton is the best choice to oversee the U.S. economy as president.
Her Republican rival, Donald Trump, didn’t even come in second.
The National Association for Business Economics surveyed its members ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential election. Roughly 55% said Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic nominee, would do the best job of managing the economy.
About 14% picked Mr. Trump—slightly less than the 15% who selected Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson and the 15% who said they didn’t know or had no opinion. ( The figures didn’t add up to exactly 100% due to rounding.)
The survey of 414 NABE members, released Monday, was conducted July 20 to Aug. 2.
