The latest cultural confidence polling cycle indicates that positive attitudes remained somewhat unchanged and those with a negative outlook don’t feel quite as bad as the previous polling cycle. At the same time, the overall outlook on current and future economic conditions is decidedly negative…
On the positive side, those indicating current economic conditions as “poor” (the lowest selection) declined to the lowest levels since November, 2008. Likewise, those indicating current economic conditions as “good” (the second highest selection) remained at some of the highest levels in the poll’s history. Unfortunately, for the fourth consecutive polling cycle in a row, none of the respondents indicated they feel economic conditions at their organization is “excellent” (the highest selection).

Looking toward the end of this season, the overall the economic outlook continues to be less than enthusiastic. Respondents indicating economic conditions will be “poor” (the lowest selection) did decline by a small margin but the number of respondents indicating they feel conditions will be “good” (the second highest selection) declined by a larger amount. As with the feelings toward current economic conditions, none of the respondents feel conditions will be excellent by the end of the season.
