poll, americans, economyThe poll finds that 37 percent of Americans believe the economy will get worse in the next year, up from 22 percent in December and close to the four-year-old survey’s record high of 43 percent in June 2008. And the latest poll was taken just before Japan’s disaster last week, which may have worsened consumer sentiment.

Inflation is a major worry too. Respondents on average expect inflation to total 6.6 percent over the next year, up from their estimate of 3 percent in December.
