(Reuters) - Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers' preliminary January consumer sentiment index fell to 71.3 from 72.9 in the final December report, according to a report released on Friday. Economists in a Reuters survey expected a preliminary January sentiment index reading of 75.0.

Survey director Richard Curtin: "The most unique aspect of the early January data was that an all-time record number of consumers - 35 percent - negatively referred to the fiscal cliff negotiations. Importantly, the debt ceiling debate is still upcoming and could further weaken confidence."
