Are You Better Off Now Than You Were Four Years Ago?

Ever since Ronald Reagan asked voters to consider, “Are You Better Off Than You Were Four Years Ago?,” during his 1984 campaign for reelection and they answered by returning him to the White House in a landslide, the question has been a benchmark for voters to consider every presidential election cycle. Given the shaky state of the country when President Obama took office in 2008, we decided to ask people their thoughts about this quadrennial concern as they consider whether to give him another term or turn to his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.
