Pew poll: 2% of Greeks have good opinion of their economy

A chart of declining national economic perceptions put together by the Pew Research Center.

To Greece -- where you'd be hardpressed to find someone who thinks the economic situation is good. But the Pew Research Center managed to do it.

In a poll of a thousand Greeks, 2 percent said the country has a good national economic situation.

Two percent also think the country is headed in the right direction.

The survey checked in with voters in other countries as well, and the Chinese had the highest satisfaction with their national economy: 83 percent said it was good.
