Members of the small-business community are optimistic after last week's midterm elections, and 62 percent believe that the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives will have a favorable impact on small businesses.

According to a survey by Manta, a free source of information on and for small businesses, 58 percent believe that their own businesses will improve because of the election results.

In the company's most recent "Pulse of Small Business" user survey, conducted last week, 69 percent of 1,189 small-business owners and employees said the Obama administration has hurt small business.

Moreover, 58 percent of the respondents said they are more confident now that they will be able to grow their business than they were two years ago.

"Our survey is truly the voice of small businesses and provides a clear view of their concerns and their new optimism," said Pamela Springer, president and CEO of Manta Media, in a statement.
