Consumer Confidence Levels Off

by Steve

With a little over six weeks to go before the election, first-time filings for unemployment insurance went up, some regional factory activity indicators tumbled, and consumer confidence as measured by the University of Michigan stagnated. But the stock market goes up and Gallup says we are heading for a Bush runaway, so I guess the voters must be happy, right?

Remember, it’s Bush’s race to lose.
