Market Trends survey resultsby Tim Manni
Our latest Weekly Market Trends survey is now complete, and the results are interesting.
We asked: How do you rate your optimism for the incoming Administration? Nearly 41% of those voting claimed to be “Not terribly optimistic,” compared to about 36% who are “Somewhat optimistic” and just 24% who seem to be “Very optimistic.
When we asked What do you think Obama’s priorities should be?, a whopping two-thirds voted for “Cut wasteful spending.” The economic stimulus package garnered 47%. (This was a multiple-choice question.)
Finally, we wanted you to tell us How long do you think the recession will last? The results were a pessimistic tie: 39.3% felt “It will last until 2010 ” and that it ”Could be two or three more years.”
