Americans More Secure in Poll as 60% See No Need for Better Job

Americans are feeling more secure about their own finances with stock and home values rising, even as a growing number say the country is headed down the wrong track, according to a Bloomberg National Poll.

People are more upbeat about a range of financial issues — job security, retirement savings, home values and household income — than they were in February, the last time Bloomberg asked the question. Eight measures of financial well-being surveyed show increasing optimism among poll respondents. [cont.]
