The confidence of the nationís business leaders in the future of the economy has dropped dramatically, according to a new survey by the Conference Board.

More CEOs surveyed view the economy negatively than positively. Only 17 percent viewed the economy positively in the second quarter of 2012, compared to 67 percent in the first quarter.

Only 20 percent expect an improvement in six months, down from 59 percent.

The survey polls 800 CEOs whose companies are members of the Conference Board. Typically, 80 to 100 CEOs respond, the group says. The results from the new survey are from May and June.
