81% think America is on the wrong track

Go to Daily Voice original
A new poll shows Americans are more pessimistic about the state of the country than at any time since the question has been asked by the pollster. A New York Times/CBS News poll out today shows 81 percent of respondents feel the country is on the wrong track.

"A majority of nearly every demographic and political group -- Democrats and Republicans, men and women, residents of cities and rural areas, college graduates and those who finished only high school -- say the United States is headed in the wrong direction," said the Times story. In fact, a full 78 percent said the country was "worse off than five years ago." Only 4 percent of respondents said the country was "better off."

The war is still an important issue for Americans, but the economy seems to be driving much of the discontent as well. Although the government has yet to acknowledge the economy is in recession, two-thirds of those polled believed the country is already in recession.
