Poll: Expectations of slower economy
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- A new Harris poll showed a dark mood among Americans about the U.S. economy in the New Year.

The survey released Tuesday found that 45 percent of Americans said the believe the U.S. economy will worsen in 2008 while 38 percent said they expected their finances to be less well off than they were last year.

"Having nearly one-in five Americans feeling that their economic situation is going to get worse will have serious repercussions for the overall economy as well as the 2008 presidential elections," Harris Vice President David Baron predicted in a statement. "This is going to influence voting in the elections because Republicans feel much more positive toward the 2008 economic outlook than Democrats or independents."

The poll also found 41 percent of Americans predicted a cutback in personal spending in 2008 and 42 percent resolved to pay down personal debt.

The online survey was taken Dec. 4-12 and polled 2,335 U.S. adults nationwide.
