Business Expectations?

September 18, 2012

In last week's CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers about their expectations for the business environment through the remainder of 2012. Responses broke down as follows:

  • Unchanged: 30.8%
  • Better: 30.8%
  • Other: 23.1%
  • Worse: 15.3%

Comments included:

"Depends on the election. If Obama, there will continue to be regulatory nonsense leading to uncertaainty by business. Hop-0efully Romney can get his act together and reverse some of the socialism that the present administration is treating us to."

"It will get better if Romney is elected. i may have to tell my twenty-something children they will have to find a new country to live in if our uninformed voters repeat their 2008 mistake."

"Depends TOTALLY on who is elected president. Obama, worse, Romney, better."

"This has everything to do with the upcoming Presidential election. If Obama is re-elected I expect things to get worse. If Romney is elected...we have a chance."
