Americans Are Optimistic About 2009 — Are You?

Despite the recession and shaky economy, most Americans are optimistic about what lies ahead in 2009. A new poll shows expectations for better conditions were higher among younger generations with 64 percent of those under 45 having an optimistic view.

Younger Americans were more likely to adopt New Year's resolutions as well. More than half of those aged 45 or younger plan to adopt lifestyle changes next year, compared with 29 percent of those 45 or older.

Last week, CitizenSugar readers shared suggestions for America's New Year's resolutions, with an emphasis on fixing the economy and international relations. There's certainly some change in the works — are you still feeling fine with 2009?
