Things must be much better at the Knoxville News-Sentinel, as it recently published an editorial proclaiming the recession appears to be over. It was an interesting question and this week’s Knoxville Focus poll asked voters, “Do you believe the recession is over?”
Almost 80% of respondents said they don’t believe the recession is over.
More than 76% of women said they don’t think the recession is over, while more than 83% of men don’t think the recession is over.
More than 85% of the people in the Ninth District don’t think the recession is over. The Ninth District is South Knoxville and the closure of the Henley Street Bridge has had a serious economic impact on that community.
Over 82% of voters aged 30 – 49 feel the recession isn’t over.
Knox Countians apparently are convinced the recession is still with us.
