The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index continues its rise, hitting -39.6 this week from -40.8 previously, and from a 7-month low of -47.4 on August 19. The -40 level is a key one, says Bloomberg, as it marks the line indicating "deep economic discontent." Democrats continue to view the economy most favorably, but the last month has seen Republicans tagging along by upgrading their assessment as well.
