Poll: Record High for Wrong-Track RatingBy Megan Thee
In the face of economic upheaval in the United States, a record 89 percent of Americans now say the country has pretty seriously gotten off on the wrong track while just 7 percent of Americans say the country is going in the right direction, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll.
While strong majorities of all demographic groups agree that the country is headed in the wrong direction, there are some who are less inclined to be of the same opinion. Republicans and those supporting Senator John McCain are more likely to say things in the country are going well than are Democrats and those supporting Senator Barack Obama.
Americans in lower income brackets and those who consider themselves part of the working class are more negative about the direction of the country.
The Times/CBS News record high of 64 percent of those saying the country was on the right track came three months after the attacks of September 11, 2001 when the country was experiencing a rally in support for all things American.
The nationwide telephone poll was conducted Friday through Monday with 1,070 adults, of whom 972 were registered voters, and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points for both groups.Complete poll results will be available this evening at 6:30 p.m.
