Interesting stats

- So, do you think the poor economy has bottomed out or not? According to Gallup, U.S. Investor optimism tumbled in June. The Index of Investor Optimism--a broad measure of investor perceptions--fell 20 points to -21 in June, giving up gains in May and returning the index to where it was in April. Yet, the Index has improved by 43 points from February's -64 reading--its lowest level since inception (October 1996.)

- Here's an odd one--nearly four in 10 Americans say their views have grown more conservative. (Source: Gallup) Despite the results of the 2008 election, Americans, by a 2-to-1 margin, say their political views in recent years have become more conservative--39% say they are more conservative than a few years ago and 18% say they are more liberal, with 42% saying their views have not changed.
