The "Wall Street" Election Poll

posted 10/12/2012 in General

10/11/12 Election Poll Highlights... 

  • In the past week ending Wednesday, the LPL Financial "Wall Street" Election Poll Index reflected the impact of the debate and a large move toward Republican-favored industries relative to those favored by Democrats. This is the first meaningful move toward Republicans since the start of the summer before the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act.

  • Over the past week, most industries in the Republican index posted gains, most notably the Coal industry, which was specifically named by presidential candidate Romney in the debate. Most Democrat-favored industries fell significantly over the past week with the most sizable declines in Home building and Health Care facilities.
