Posted on 12/11/2012 6:58:30 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
Gallup's U.S. Economic Confidence Index is at -16 for the week ending Dec. 9, down from -12 the previous week. Confidence is now the lowest it has been since the presidential election...
The decline in confidence comes even though the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released a better-than-expected jobs report on Friday, showing a 0.2-percentage-point improvement in the seasonally adjusted employment rate. Still, confidence was -16 from Friday, Dec. 7, through Sunday, Dec. 9 -- similar to the weekly average.
The trend in Gallup's Economic Confidence index, based on more than 3,000 interviews conducted each week, is not as negative as Friday's Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan preliminary consumer sentiment index, which was at its lowest level in four months. Although Gallup's Economic Confidence Index declined last week, it remains significantly better than the -27 reading at the end of August.

Further down the toilet, America. You voted for it. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of economic sewage.
It'll go along well with the moral crap you're ingesting--while you pretend it is a feast.
Its about to change from a fade to a free fall scenario.
They will get what they voted for, just wished that we didn’t have to take the ride as well.
No Wonder Odumbo has been in Michigan regarding the Freedom to Work by the Michigan Republican Legislators. He has to have another prop for his continual negatives that he is creating. He will not work with anyone whom has a differing view. The employers confidence is down because 4 more years of the crapastic Washington DC garbage will only create chaos and confusion. Thanks to the Democraps for voting for this crappola.
Obama is going to crash the system and then declare that the White Man’s system (free markets and free consumers) never worked anyway. And then he will begin his process of the nationalization of America.
It’s hard to imagine we’re the generation that is going to see the disintegration of the America that took 200+ years to build. We’re a country full of lazy, gravy train mooching people, and no longer the one where hard work and rugged individualism were cornerstones of our greatness. The left has prevailed in creating a large dependency class and resentment towards those who achieve greatness. I wish this were a bad dream but our demise as a nation is occurring before our eyes, and half of our countrymen don’t know and don’t care.
4 more years?
If the left was able to steal this election (and they did), they will not be removed by the ballot box.
What "Americans" are today.....
