A special Roy Morgan SMS Survey taken in mid-November shows only 31% of Australians think 2018 will be ‘better’ than 2017, while 39% say 2018 will be ‘the same’ and 30% say 2018 will be ‘worse’. Of concern is that 31% is the lowest figure ever recorded for Australians expecting next year to be ‘better’ and the 2017 results have the lowest net positive rating since 1990 when more Australians expected 1991 to be ‘worse’ (49%) than ‘better’ (33%). This is the first time in the history of this survey conducted since 1980 that no answer has reached the 40% mark. Analysis by States shows Victorians are most optimistic about 2018 with 33% expecting 2018 to be ‘better’, while South Australians are least optimistic about 2018, with 36% expecting 2018 to be ‘worse’.
