    They haven’t updated this yet today and I’m guessing that, after the news flow out of the nation’s capital over the weekend, it won’t be going back up, but Gallup’s daily economic confidence survey is already doing some cliff diving.

    Gallup Confidence

    This poll is conducted daily (that must get repetitive for the survey-takers) with about 1,500 U.S. adults and the data shown above is a three-day rolling average that, based on what I’ve been reading lately, will continue to fall until there’s a deal in Washington.

    About The Author

    As you may have already deduced, this is not your typical financial blog, accompanied by some run-of-the-mill investment newsletter, and I’m not your typical financial writer.

    In fact, I spent my entire working career as an engineer before retiring back in 2007 at the tender young age of 46. Two years prior to that in 2005 I started writing a blog – The Mess That Greenspan Made – mostly just to poke fun at the housing bubble and the policy makers who had led us down that path.

    Details about the investment newsletter and information about the performance of the associated “model portfolio” can be found here and if there are any questions that I can help answer, just send mail to tim@iaconoresearch.com.
