Bloomberg’s consumer comfort index surged to the highest level since its peak in February 2007. However, while Republicans are the happiest since 2008, Democrats’ confidence is collapsing…

relative to Republicans was in September 2013, when President Obama
authorized the use of force against Syria (over crossing his chemical
weapons red line).
