The Polls Show ...

What is normal?  Many Portland Business Journal readers believe the Dow will return to normal by the end of the year and that normal is between 9,000 and 11,000.

Florida is not normal.  Financial meltdown and a high foreclosure rate have turned a comfortably Republican state into an electoral tossup.

Overseas, more than two out of three respondents to a New Zealand business poll believe that the current financial situation is a historical event on a scale similar to the Crash of '29.

Under the category of Extreme Discontent, a new survey shows that 62% of small business owners would cross party lines to vote for the presidential candidate who would do the most to help their business.  Nearly half feel that their business is in jeopardy.
