NEW YORK -- When Republicans and Democrats look at the American economy, they see different things.

Among Republican voters, 81% say U.S. President Donald Trump's policies have helped the economy despite a bitter trade war with China, with 58% identifying strongly with the position, according to a poll in late November by the Financial Times and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, a fiscally oriented think tank in New York. In contrast, 78% of Democrats say the policies have done the opposite.
