Poll: 67 Percent Think America's Headed in Wrong Direction

Thursday, 18 Dec 2014 01:37 PM

Two out of every three people believe that America is heading in the wrong direction, according to a new poll.

The Rasmussen Reports survey shows that 67 percent of likely voters feel the United States is on the wrong track, up one point from the same poll 12 months ago.

The new figure contrasts to the 25 percent of respondents who think that the country is heading in the right direction, which is a slight decrease of one percentage point to the poll a year ago.

Nearly nine out of every 10 Republicans, 87 percent, and nearly seven out of every 10 independents, 69 percent, think the country is going down the wrong path. Democrats feel the same, albeit by a margin of just 47 to 43 percent.

When it comes to black voters, they think by a margin of 48 to 38 percent that the country is actually headed the right way. But 75 percent of whites and 57 percent of other minority voters feel that the country should take a new course.

As for voters over 40, they are more concerned about the country's direction than younger voters.
Eight out of 10 conservatives and six out of 10 moderates believe the U.S. needs to follow a path that is different from the one being followed now. Liberals, however, are evenly divided.

The national telephone survey of 3,500 likely voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports from December 8-14, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
