For the second straight year, an annual Gallup Poll has found that a plurality of Americans believe gold is the single safest long term investment option. Safer than savings accounts. Safer than real estate. Safer than stocks. A full 28.0% of adults ranked gold as their top choice, down from 34.0% last year, a drop just outside the five point margin error. It was most popular among older Americans, those without a college degree, and individuals who earned between $30,000.00 and $75,000.00 a year.
