Half of Americans surveyed in a recent Rasmussen study are feeling bullish about 2018, even while they are not as optimistic as in years past. A poll conducted by the Rasmussen organization on December 27-28 found that 56 percent of Americans contacted online and via telephone believe that the New Year will be at least a good year.
Of those polled, 14 percent think that 2018 will be among the best years ever, while 17 percent feel it will be an excellent year and another 25 percent say it will be a good year.
The Rasmussen poll found that only 18 percent expect that we are headed into a poor year. The survey sample was 1,000 American adults and had a sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
