Investors Don’t Credit Obama for What’s Going Right
(Daily Finance) — Riddle me this Obama haters: If the president is at fault for the economy’s problems, shouldn’t he get credit for the things are going right? Apparently not. More than 62% of U.S. investors polled by Bloomberg News had a negative view of President Obama. Surprisingly, 63% of respondents say his policies are “detrimental to the U.S. investment climate.” Among U.S. investors, that number increases to 68%. Respondents to the poll of Bloomberg subscribers, who are mostly well-heeled financial-services types, overwhelmingly believe that the Republican victory in the midterm elections will be good for business. That view may be simplistic.
