The Bloomberg Consumer Confidence Index edges lower to -33.9 from -33.1 last week. A separate question on expectations hits a 10-year high, with 37% saying the economy is improving, up 7 points from last month and 30 points from a year ago. The gain, however, came entirely from Democrats, no doubt celebrating the re-election of the President. A full 63% of Democrats see the economy improving, up 12 points from October, and against 26% of independents and 15% of Republicans in agreement.
