Poll: Number Who Say U.S. Is Heading In Right Direction Hits Another High

Saturday, March 7th, 2009


For the second straight week, the percentage of voters who say the United States is heading in the right direction rose to its highest level in recent years.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 35% now say the country is moving in the right direction, up from 30% last week and 28% the week before.

In the latest poll, 58% believe the nation is moving down the wrong track, compared to 62% last week and 64% the week before.

The number of American voters who say the country is heading in the right direction is the highest since October 2004, when 43% felt the same way. The latest result is now 14 points higher than the level found just after Barack Obama was elected president.
