I’m late on this news, but still think it’s worth noting.
Fewer than four-in-10 Americans (39 percent) rate the US in a positive manner – the most negative feedback the country has produced since 1979.
A new Gallup poll finds that Americans are as negative about the country’s prospects as they have been in more than three decades…[whereas] fifty-five percent of Americans say the state of the nation five years ago was positive…
…The three previous points in time when ratings were as low as or lower than the 2013 rating were in August 1979 (34 percent), April 1974 (33 percent), and January 1971 (39 percent).
Where were these people, last Election Day? If they voted for Obama (and we know that some must have): What were they thinking?
Of course, a lot of them were/are
deluded um, “low information voters”:
Seventy-five percent of Democrats gave positive reviews of how the nation will be five years from now…
