Gallup: Americans Less Positive Since Carter

    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. Americans are more upbeat in their predictions of where the U.S. will be in five years (48 percent positive), but this is the lowest rating since an August 1979 Gallup poll was conducted.

    The negativity about the current state of the US has a politically partisan split – Republicans stated that the country’s best days have already passed and Democrats say the best days have not happened yet. Seventy-five percent of Democrats gave positive reviews of how the nation will be five years from now, but only 15 percent of Republicans were positive – a 60 percent partisan gap.

    As a whole, fifty-five percent of Americans say the state of the nation five years ago (under Bush) was positive.
  2. I read that poll in another paper. First thing I thought of was why didn't they take that poll a few days before the election? Im sure the results would have been the same.

    Frankly, we didn't need a poll. The people knew they were voting for a black Jimmy Carter.
  3. Cant trust gallup(or rasmuessen),they had Romney ahead of obama in most of their biased polls

    I think it was turnout and some voter fraud. Many conservatives didn't have enough sense to get out to vote AGAINST Obama. Those who wanted their government handouts to continue turned out in droves.
