WSJ Poll: Confidence in Obama Hits Low

Thursday, 24 Jun 2010 09:33 AM


Americans are more down about their country and President Barack Obama than at any point since the new administration began, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

• The poll also indicates grave concern about the Gulf oil spill.

• The great majority of adults want stringent regulation of the oil industry, and worry that the catastrophe will impact the nation's economy and environment.

• Sixty-two percent of adults in the survey feel the country is on the wrong track.

• One-third think the economy will get better over the next year.

• 57 percent of voters would prefer to elect a new person to Congress than re-elect their local representatives.

The results show "a really ugly mood and an unhappy electorate," said Democratic pollster Peter Hart.
