Poll: How do you feel after Budget 2012?

Do you feel more down in the dumps after Budget 2012 – or do you feel more relieved than you expected to? Tell us in our sentiment poll this morning…

IT’S A MATTER of checking your bank balance next January – and checking’s Budget 2012 calculator – to figure out exactly how your wallet has been affected by the last two days of announcements.

But now that you have had a night to sleep on the austerity measures, we want to know how it has affected you emotionally.

Do you feel less or more happy after the Budget 2012 announcement – or about the same as you did before? Tell us:

Poll Results:

I feel the same as I did before Budget 2012 (605)
I am more unhappy (447)
I am actually happier/relieved (328)
I don't know yet (179)
