Poll: Americans Becoming More Optimistic About Economy

A new CBS/New York Times poll finds that Americans have become more optimistic about the economy now than at any time during the recession.

The numbers: 41% say the economy is getting better, up from 33% in April. Only 15% say the economy is getting worse. President Obama's approval rating on the economy has also improved in this poll, with 48% approving and 47% disapproving -- Obama's highest rating since this past November. The sample of American adults has a margin of error of ±3%.

From CBS's analysis: "Most Democrats (77 percent) approve of the president's handling the economy, while most Republicans disapprove (86 percent). Independents are divided: 46 percent approve, while 45 percent disapprove. Last month, more independents disapproved than approved of how Mr. Obama was handling the economy."

Idiots.

Not necesarrily.

I pay attention to inflation on a weekly basis and I'm seeing prices going up in a lot of places, which is what a lot of people focus 'their' economic outlook around.

Just because the nation as a "whole" might see growth from a business perspective, doesn't mean the individual is seeing the same effect.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

When the former party of the working guy thinks long term double-digit unemployment is acceptable, you know they could less about reality.

From where I am sitting, things are looking up. There are rough spots that are going to hang around for awhile - unemployment and real estate primarily. But we're getting back into business, hiring has started grand scale in my firm and career moves are happening. We're leaving survival mode and start investing in growing the business. I'll just be riding the wave. :thumbs:

The speculators that got them there do not tend to care about that.

There are two factors that are much different than 2008.

1. The general market is not stagnant.

2. The Euro is weak and getting weaker, the dollar is appreciating.

If there's a buck to be made manipulating the oil market, then the oil market will be manipulated. If better money is in bets against the Euro - does not seem all that unlikely - then the odds or the degree of manipulating the price of oil will be lower.
