Gallup Poll - Big Wrong Track Numbers

Bad news for Dems, (good news for the country.) Americans are very unhappy about the direction of the nation, even compared to other difficult times.

Gallup has released a new poll measuring current American "satisfaction." According to the survey, just 21% of Americans answered affirmatively when asked, "In general, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in the United States at this time?" If that number holds for two weeks, it would be the lowest level of American satisfaction that Gallup has registered at the time of a midterm election in more than 30 years of tracking the question.

This historic low suggests serious trouble for the Democrats. As the pollster says, "In the four recent midterm elections in which satisfaction has been below 40% ['06, '94, '90, '82], the president's party has lost an average of 30 seats in the U.S. House. This includes losses of 30 seats in 2006 and 53 in 1994 when one party controlled both houses of Congress and the presidency."

In a sidebar, Americans are getting impatient with one of the favorite manipulation tools of the socialists.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Adults believe America today has become too politically correct, while just 23% say the country is not politically correct enough.

Eleven percent (11%) say the balance is about right.

Some people think that government officials too often override the facts and common sense in the name of political correctness, and 74% regard political correctness as a problem in America today.

Americans are lining up nicely with reality these days.
