The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index rises to -40.8 from -42.2 last week, despite a poor jobs report and continuing hikes in pump prices. A separate forward-looking gauge shows 34% see the economy getting worse, a sharp 11 point drop from last month, and only 8 points more than those seeing an improvement - the narrowest gap since May. Partisanship rules, with Democrats having a far better opinion of the economy than Republicans.

    That's interesting that Democrats have a far better opinion of the economy than Republicans (generally speaking).
