2% - The slowdown in the global economy - especially China.
77% - Washington’s anti-business policies, especially from Obama.
16% - Lack of investment in the economy by corporate America.
5% - What slow economy? We’re doing great.
In our poll this week, only 5% of America’s small businesses report their businesses are doing great, while more than three-fourths say they think their business is being held back by Washington’s anti-business policies. If this were any other significant voting bloc, these numbers would be foretelling a revolution.
And make no mistake. When you add up all small business owners in America, plus their employees and voting age dependent children, that number would total about 100 million voters. Find another constituency like that!
With this sentiment in evidence, if small business owners and their connected “family” got organized behind what’s good for the entity that feeds and clothes them, they could be the electoral revolution. And the result would be what’s good for small business. Which I’ve long held and have many times said that what’s good for small business is good for the world.
Alas, we’re not organized. If we were, the world would change - for the better.
