Most middle market executives in the United States think the 2012 presidential candidates should pay more attention to their segment of the market, according to a new CIT Group report.

The report includes many positive signs, with 53% of middle market executives say their companies are stronger today than before the Great Recession. In the coming year most intend to increase their product lines (65%), expand into new markets (58%), and enter new regions (53%). Four in 10 - 42% - plan new hiring in the coming year.

But most of these executives - 81% - say the outcome of the presidential election will have an impact on the health of the economy, with 38% saying it will have a major impact.

And most of these executives - 71% - say Governor Romney and President Obama spend too little time talking about the middle market.

CIT Group Inc. is a provider of financing to small businesses and middle market companies.

The online survey was conducted by KRC Research among 300 U.S. middle market executives in a range of industries, in firms whose revenue was between $25 million and $1 billion.
