Maybe The Takeaway Is Have An Opinion And Be Involved

Maybe The Takeaway Is Have An Opinion And Be Involved

A new survey by Experian indicates that many Americans are optimistic about their personal financial outlook over the next 4 years.  Survey respondents were from a variety of political affiliations, ages, race, religion, etc.  Sixty percent had voted in the presidential election and 36% had not voted.  

Interestingly, 51% of respondents thought that their individual financial situation would improve over the next 4 years.  But only 37% believed that everyones’ personal finances would improve!  That viewpoint was more widespread among the respondents that didn’t vote.

As you would expect, Republicans expressed greater optimism;  77% believing in a rosier outlook, 44% of independents but democrats only 19% believed things would improve over the next four years.  

Every now and then I hear folks say that outcomes of elections don’t impact there personal lives.  This small survey of 1000 people shows that elections do have an effect on our frame of mind and the state of our emotions.  So maybe the takeaway is to get involved and have an opinion!
