Positive about engineering

Nice report, Lauren. It's encouraging that such a high percentage of engineers would recommend their career to a son or daughter. 

As for as the political outlook, it seems to break down like the general population.

Mixed messages on the economic front
Beth Stackpole   8/1/2012 7:42:58 AM
NO RATINGS
Interesting that the results of our survey seem to buck the current feeling in the general populace around a stalled economy and stagnant economic growth. I'm running into this mixed messaging a lot lately, depending on the geographic location of who I'm talking to and the type of work/industry sector that they're in. Part of me thinks some of the current economic doom and gloom is too tied to what's going on abroad and the upcoming election, yet there are still so many hard-to-ignore signs that growth hasn't returned to where people expected after four years of "the great recession." In any case, I'm pleased to see engineering as a bright spot and hope there's some kind of filter down or filter up effect for the broader, global economic ecosystem.
