Bulgarians less optimistic about 2019
Bulgarians are not optimistic about the coming year, according to a new Gallup International survey. The Sofia News Agency reports that 30 percent of its citizens expect 2019 to be worse compared to 2018, while just 22 percent believe that it will end up better. Gallup carries out the "Global Index of Hope" each year internationally. The level of optimism has fallen 8 percent over the past year compared to last year, when it rose 3 percent. Compared to other European, Bulgarians are far less optimistic, even less so than Albanians and Romanians.
