Most Americans feel that the nation's economy is improving, yet the job situation is still bleak.

Many more voters continue to say former President George W. Bush is responsible for the federal deficit.

The new poll finds 49 percent of voters think the economy is getting better, while 37 percent say it is getting worse and 11 percent say "staying the same."

The number saying things are getting better is up 9 percentage points from 40 percent who thought so a year ago (June 2009).

But when it comes to jobs, it's the reverse: 36 percent say it's getting better and 48 percent getting worse.

On a personal level, 36 percent say it feels like things are getting better for their family, while about the same number - 38 percent - says it feels like things are getting worse. Another 24 percent say it feels like things are staying the same.

Opinion Dynamics Corp. conducted the national telephone poll for Fox News among 900 registered voters from May 4 to May 5. For the total sample, the poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.
