The Marist Poll’s America Now: National Outlook Index (NOI) stands at 6.5 out of a maximum top score of 10. This matches the highest score in the NOI to date. The NOI is buoyed by a steady economic outlook, specifically a striking improvement in views of the jobs market. Opinions of personal health and life in Americans’ local communities remain strong. Impressions of society and government still pull down the NOI.
