3. As you suggest, the poll results are far from reliable and even further from indicative...
...of any causation or application toward future trends.

I don't, from looking around my blighted Forbes worst city (one of worst five), see things worse, they've actually improved.

It looked worse two years ago, and people are getting by pretty well, it seems.

I could have answered the poll either way.

I'm worse off if I look at the value of my home or retirement. But better off in my career and income.

So maybe, had I wanted to make things look bad in answering your poll, I'd have answered "worse".

And vice-versa.

Take heart, we'll be fine if we keep our eye on the prize and put our energy in productive directions.

:thumbsup:
