CNBC Poll: When Will the Fed Raise Interest Rates

CNBC asked readers to vote on when they think the US Fed will raise interest rates. You can see the poll and the latest results here. One thing that is interesting about this is that it is unusual for the Fed to raise rates heading into an election year so we will see if that has any influence on them.


"The Fed met last Wednesday, with the market pricing in zero chance of a rate hike—but what do you think?
Fed funds futures, financial instruments the market uses to handicap rate hikes, are currently pointing to the first move in December.
The latest CNBC Fed Survey still shows a majority expecting a September rate hike, but that majority is rapidly shrinking.
So, when you do think the first hike is coming?"
