Do you agree with this poll?

The number of Americans who say things are going badly in the country, at 75 percent, is higher than it has been on the eve of any midterm election since the question was first asked in the mid-1970s, according to a new national poll.

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that the economy remains, by far, the top issue on the minds of Americans. Fifty-two percent of people questioned say the economy's the most important
issue facing the country.

Just one in four polled Americans say things are going well in the country today, with three-quarters saying things are going poorly.

  • OP, the polls don't surprise me a bit. What I do find enormously satisfying is the results are similar no matter who is doing the polling.

    Sweet, I thought you got a job? Is is working on cafemom. It doesn't seem to matter what time of day I come on here, but there you are question after question and dozens and dozens of posts. How do you manage it all?

  • I, personally, think that America (and I say that because I was not a part of those who voted him in) made a huge mistake voting Obama into presidency. Why would we ever elect a Muslim to lead OUR country. It makes no sense at all to me. I know this might upset some, but I really don't care.

  •  The party of a president with approval ratings below 50% has lost an average of 36 seats in mid-term elections since 1946, according to Gallup, a polling firm. The state of the economy also portends Democratic losses . The last time unemployment was anything like its current level of 9.6% at a mid-term election, in 1982, the president’s party lost 26 seats in the House, even though it was already in the minority.


    gee...Obama and Reagan have so much in common
