WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' optimism about their personal finances has climbed to levels not seen in more than 16 years, with 69% now saying they expect to be financially better off "at this time next year."
The 69% saying they expect to be better off is only two percentage points below the all-time high of 71%, recorded in March 1998 at a time when the nation's economic boom was producing strong economic growth combined with the lowest inflation and unemployment rates in decades.
Fifty percent say they are better off today than they were a year ago. That 50% still represents a post-recession milestone -- the first time since 2007 that at least half of the public has said they are financially better off than a year ago.
Sixty-two percent of those under 30 say they are better off; 25% say worse off.
Forty-five percent of women say they are better off; 29% say worse off.
* Forty-five percent of those with annual household incomes of less than $40,000 say better off, 35% worse off.
* Among liberals, 40% say better off, 31% worse off.
Wait, even LIBERALS say they are better off!! Impossible, can't be.... Quick call CNN, they must be running low on Koolaid!!!
