Americans are becoming more optimistic about the state of the economy. This is TERRIBLE news for the GOP. They hate hearing news like this. They DON’T want Americans to feel better about an improving economy, because they know as the economy continues to improve, the worse their chances are of beating President Obama.
"Americans are usually optimists, but in 2011, polls for the first time found that more than half the country thought that economic conditions would worsen in the next 12 months," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Now that trend has reversed itself, with only four in ten saying that the economy will be in poor shape a year from now."
Sixty percent of those questioned say the economy will be in good shape next year, a surge from 39% who felt that way last October.
