Rasmussen: 29% Say America is on the Right Track, 67% Wrong Track

67% say America is on the wrong track, the highest of the Obama Presidency


For the second straight week, only 29% of U.S. voters say the country is heading in the right direction, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Last week’s right direction finding was the lowest level measured since February.

The percentage of voters who felt the country is heading in the right direction remained in the narrow range of 31% to 35% from July to early November. From late November until mid-December, confidence in the country’s current course held steady at 30%.

The majority of voters (67%) continue to believe the nation is heading down the wrong track, the highest level found in 2009. However, in the weeks just prior to Barack Obama's election, more than 80% of voters felt that way.
