on the poll revealing that 66% of LGBT investors were optimistic about their financial outlook, compared to only half of heterosexual investors. And while 51% of the latter express being financially comfortable currently, 59% of the former claim the same.
"The advancements the LGBT community has made in the last five to six years - and especially the last couple of years - have led to a higher degree of optimism," said Wells Fargo spokesman Kyle Young.
The news backs a theory suggesting that the Obama coalition of youth, singles, and minorities - sexual and otherwise - are feeling especially chipper in recent days compared to the rest of the population. A poll last month found
that Democratic voters were far more likely than Republican voters to say their standard of living was improving.
