Is this really surprising?

Even the slow get it eventually......................



38% Say Country Heading in Right Direction

Thirty-eight percent (38%) of U.S. likely voters believe the nation is now moving in the right direction, down slightly from a week ago and the first drop since March. It's too early, however, to say if it's a trend in the making.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% believe America is still headed down the wrong track.

The number who responded right direction is down from 40% last week, representing the first drop since March. The latest results match those found two weeks ago.

The percentage of voters who say the nation is heading in the right direction is up 11 points from the week in January when Barack Obama was inaugurated president. The number who say wrong track is seven points below the level found that same week.

  • Women remain more optimistic than men this week. While 41% of women say the nation is heading in the right direction, just 34% of men agree. Sixty-one percent of men say the country is heading down the wrong track, compared to 51% of women.

    Optimism among black voters jumped four points to 70% this week, which is over twice the number of white voters who say the nation is heading in the right direction.

    The number of Democrats who answered right direction slipped from 68% last week to 62% in the latest poll. Only 15% of Republicans agree, up from 13% a week ago, while unaffiliated voters showed no change this week at 31%.

    I guess men are good for something after all: thinking!!!!!!!!!!!

    Question, for short memories, is this surprising?

  • I'm assuming you have a point? Are you trying to give NObama some kind of credit?
