Gallup Poll: Americans More Optimistic About Economy

The most recent Gallup poll validates what anyone who was in a shopping mall over the holidays already knew: Americans are far more optimistic about their own financial situation and the strength of the American economy as a whole than they have been for some time.

According to Gallup, by a two-to-one margin — 52 to 25 percent — Americans think that the economy will be better rather than worse this year. Forty-four percent think their personal financial situation will be better in 2011, while 16 percent think it will be worse.
