Still Optimistic After All These Years

November 5, 2012 — Digit #21

On the eve of the election and the heels of sadly destructive Sandy, we are reminded of what Americans have in common. In the 1800’s, Tocqueville called it American Optimism. Today, despite challenging events and polarizing noise, most Americans share the dream that tomorrow is another day… and a better one at that.

Signs that American Optimism is alive – and it’s bipartisan

  • More than 80% of Americans expect the future to be as good or better than today (DYG SCAN 2012)
  • Eight in ten want political leaders who are willing to compromise to get the job done (Pew) and to work together to get things done (Gallup)





And the surest sign of optimism in action? Voting.


Happy Election Day
Here’s to tomorrow!
