Optimism on economy, stocks surges since Trump election: CNBC survey

The election of Donald Trump has brought with it a surge in optimism in the United States over the economy and stocks not seen in years.

The CNBC All-America Economic Survey for the fourth quarter found that the percentage of Americans who believe the economy will get better in the next year jumped an unprecedented 17 points to 42 percent, compared with before the election. It’s the highest level since President Barack Obama was first elected in 2008.

The surge was powered by Republicans and independents reversing their outlooks. Republicans swung from deeply pessimistic, with just 15 percent saying the economy would improve in the next year, to strongly optimistic, with 74 percent believing in an economic upswing. Optimism among independents doubled but it fell by more than half for Democrats. Just 16 percent think the economy will improve.

“We’re looking at America moving into a more positive era with regard to economic expectations,” said Micah Roberts, vice president at Public Opinion Strategies, which serves as the Republican pollster for the CNBC survey. “No doubt the election of Donald Trump has ushered that in.”

The poll of 800 adults around the country was conducted Dec. 2 to 5, and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points. Hart Research Associates served as the Democratic pollsters.

    All across this country, all over the world, Trump’s election is making people smile, be excited for their own futures and looking at Americans fighting a “Bulletless Revolution” and winning. The UK doing the same and now they are looking to follow. I don’t think the average Fake News reader, O’s followers have ever admitted to themselves that it is O who put the regulations on small and big business alike that has brought them into their parents basements and living off the government this last 8 years. I don’t think they realize how he stopped our independence in oil and other treasures we have so as to keep his brothers in the ME and all over happy.

    We have steel, water, fish, game, wild lands and mountains filled with jewels, which by the way Clinton turned into government lands ending the money making by many in the states that had them, we have every single thing we need to survive to flourish and to prosper. Yet everything made in China, Taiwan, Vietnam, you name it. I live in Florida surrounded by water the fish in the grocery stores comes from Vietnam, China, you name it everywhere but here so we don’t buy it. We ask the stores for fish caught here and Publix and others accommodated the public who was asking for it.

    Tired of what NAFTA did and how it made ghost towns out of our farming communities etc. Tired of O and his constant interference in everything and tired of the UN telling him what to do. America is on the road to prosperity again and far as I am concerned the longer those idiots stay in their parents basement the better. The rest of the scum parasites can go to Hell in a handbasket and I wold gladly put them on the next transport leaving for it.

      Very well said Tiger! I also live in Florida. Naples has the same problem with seafood. I would never buy fish from China or Vietnam.
      I agree with your two last sentences about the parasites. They should move to Cuba or Venezuela if they don’t like it here.
      BTW, did you hear about Obama looking to investigate about the election and putting Russia in the picture. Russia hacking the election???
      Then, this snake could declare Martial Law to stay in power longer.
      I really hope it won’t happen. Everyday we hear about these awful leftists trying to destroy our vote for the President Elected Trump.
      I am sick in my stomach to hear all these distortions and lies from them.
      I wish the 20th of January was already behind us and President Trump is in charge of the Great America.

      1. Tiger says:

        Thank you. Yes I know about O’s investigation even though Assange is the power behind the Wikileaks and he has his people working, one was shot 28 times in the back on the way to the FBI to report on HIllary. Assange was threatened during all this and by the way the leaks and the video proved to be true, look at the DNC members fired. I knew this was coming when Clinton made the comment in her speech that Fake news has consequences as we have seen. Sure he will try to connect Trump and Putin and get him on a felony. Trump made the comment maybe the Russians can find the 33,000 emails and they jumped on it. Connecting dots that were not there. O still in charge and owns the DOJ, FBI, CIA and then there is Lynch get ready cause fireworks on the way.

        If there is any possible way for O to take Trump out he will do it you can bet your bippy on that. They are furious because everything they worked for years to do to America and the world is falling apart. In Europe they woke up, in America we woke up, I said before they misread all of us and jumped the gun on the New World Order.

        Believe me there will be trouble and on the double before Jan 20th and don’t know how Trump can combat it with O being the boss and owning the bank, lock, stock and barrel.

        1. Anouk says:

          Do you mean Trump has no chance to become President in the United States or something very bad is going to happen to him before the 20th of January.
          My entourage beg me to stop to be so worry about all this, but I can’t help to be indeed very concerned.

          1. Tiger says:

            I believe that they will attempt something before he is in office4. ISIS calling it out and saying going to be a “Bloody Day”, they are situated all over this country and capable of it. Yes don’t mean to worry you, I do enough of that for myself and all of us, my entourage tell me the same thing. But I pick up on things. Something will happen.
