76 percent Americans are not satisfied with the direction of the country
Monitoring Desk-Islamabad: The Recent Gallup social Poll indicates that 76% Americans are not satisfied with the direction of the country, reports Dispatch News Desk while citing recent Gallup Poll.
The Gallup social Poll was conducted from September 4 to September 7 and published on Friday indicates that this marks the 10th consecutive month that satisfaction has fallen between 23% and 25% — a remarkably narrow range in a measure that has reached as high as 70% and as low as 7% since 2000.
The Poll report written by Lydia Saad indicates:
“This month’s rating also matches the average so far in 2014, which is down slightly from an average 24% in 2013, but up from 17% in 2011. The main difference between satisfaction in 2014 and those prior years is the stability seen this year. In addition to Americans’ extreme tilt toward a negative view of the country today, nearly half of the public say they are very dissatisfied with the way things are going. That is slightly worse than in January when 42% were highly dissatisfied — at a time when overall satisfaction matched today’s level. Thus, the public’s mood is worse today by this measure. However, it is roughly the same as it was a year ago, when 45% were very dissatisfied”, indicated the Poll report.
