More than half the country’s voters are unhappy with the nation’s direction, according to a poll from The Hill
The survey shows that 59 percent of respondents believe the country is on the wrong track, and only 31 percent feel things are generally going in the right direction.
Meanwhile, 44 percent of voters think their families will be worse off four years from now, compared to 34 percent who think they’ll be better off, and 10 percent who think they’ll be about the same.
A total of 54 percent of respondents believe today’s American children will be worse off economically as adults than their parents, while only 16 percent feel they’ll be better off, and 22 percent maintain they’ll be about the same.
The poll also shows that 34 percent of voters think the country is much less admired around the world than four years ago, 25 percent think it is somewhat less admired, 19 percent think it is somewhat more admired, and 18 percent think it is much more admired.
Republicans have a particularly bleak outlook on these questions. A whopping 87 percent see the country on the wrong track, 72 percent believe their families will be worse off in four years, and 80 percent think children will end up worse off than their parents.
