Wall Street's Washington worries appear to be growing. According to the 48 economists, fund managers and strategists who responded to a recent CNBC survey, financial professionals rank the "fiscal cliff" as the top threat facing the U.S. economy and put the chance of recession in the next year at a 13-month high of nearly 29%. Respondents estimate going over the "cliff" will reduce growth by 1.6%, which is a large drag on an economy that's only expected to grow by just 1.92% in 2013.
