Americans continue to describe the economy as bad and their aversion to large purchases and non-essential spending supports this perspective, according to a recent Harris Poll.

The poll asked about boat purchases. Six percent of respondents said they were likely to buy a boat or RV, down from 7 percent in January. Two percent of those polled said they were very likely to buy a boat or RV, and 89 percent said they were not likely to do so.

The poll surveyed 2,184 adults online from May 9-16.
