"A majority of Americans surveyed -- and a higher percentage than recorded during the same time last year -- said things in the United States are going 'badly.' Among this year's respondents, 29 percent said 'pretty badly' and 25 percent -- up from 15 percent a month ago -- answered 'very badly.' By comparison, 37 percent described the way things are going as 'fairly well,' and 9 percent answered 'very well.'Just about every election in my lifetime has been almost 50/50. Thanks for bringing us together, Mr. President. Thanks to you, America is almost 100%... against you.
Of these people, 76 percent said there was 'something' to be angry about in the country today. By comparison, 59 percent felt that way when polled in February. (Watch Bill Schneider's take on angry voters -- 1:40)
Only 21 percent said they were 'generally content' in the latest poll."
