Poll shows majority of Americans see a bleak and dark future

USA Today/Gallup poll shows a pessimistic America, and rightly so.

A recent poll done late Tuesday the 1st of January shows that the majority of Americans see a dark and bleak future for America under President Obama and our current government.

One of the key concepts would be that Americans believe our best years are behind us.  I would be one of those people.

Here’s the article, with the poll shown.


Yep.  Our future ain’t lookin’ so bright, so save your shades.

In the new poll, more than three of four Americans say the way politics works in Washington is causing serious harm to the country.Results from the nationwide poll and interviews in this Ohio River Valley city, which counts George Washington among its founders, underscore the rocky road Obama and other officials face in convincing Americans the nation can address its most persistent problems — and that they can be trusted to lead the way.

Indeed.  Indeed.

I know, I know…it’s just a poll.  Things can be suspect when doing any kind of public-opinion poll, ie, who are these people polled, what are their political leanings, who did they vote for, etc.  But dang, folks.  Look around you.  Is this the America you want?

Polls show a majority think things will not be better 4 yrs from now and yet the majority voted to re-elect the cause ( Obama and his disciples ). I've got news for ya, subsidies and Obama checks for the growing number of "takers" is, and will be for a long time, the new normal. If Hillary runs in 2016, she'll be a shoe in, that means we have at least 8 yrs of this bring Greece to America policies. I'm in my 50's so at least I was able to experience and appreciate the America that once was. I feel sad for the current and next generation for the America they will live in.
