Americans’ Optimism on Economy Increases


According to results of a new Gallup poll, twice as many Americans think the U.S. economy will be better rather than worse in 2011. Gallup analysis suggests this could represent either the generally optimistic nature of Americans, or it could reflect views of a recovering economy. Poll results include:

• Americans living in the East (52%) and Midwest (56%) are a bit more optimistic about the economic outlook for 2011 versus those living in the South (51%) and West (48%).

• Americans making $75,000 or more in annual income are slightly more optimistic than other Americans, and Democrats are considerably more optimistic than their independent and Republican counterparts.

• Americans are somewhat less positive about their personal economic situations than about the economy more broadly. Forty-four percent think their personal situation will be better in 2011, while 16% think it will be worse.
