President Barack Obama delivers remarks about extending tax cuts for middle class on Nov. 28, 2012 in Washington, DC.

That’s the percent share of global investors who say President Barack Obama and Republican congressional leaders will reach a short-term agreement to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.

A Bloomberg Global Poll conducted Nov. 27 also found that just 6 percent predict a stalemate that will bring the economy into recession. Seven percent envision an impasse with little consequence. Another 7 percent think the two sides will come to a long-term deal.

David Lynch of Bloomberg News has more on the poll. The fiscal cliff is a combination of $607 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts that are scheduled to take effect beginning in January.
