Majority of Americans believe U.S. on wrong track: poll

bg pollAn “overwhelming” majority of Americans believe the U.S. is on the wrong track, according to a poll from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

“Though the American public is as divided as it has been all year, as we head into the 2014 general elections the advantage among likely voters is flowing toward Republicans,” said Christopher Arterton, poll director and GW professor of political management, in a press release.

“Despite the public’s antipathy toward Congress, particularly toward the Republican leadership in the House, President Obama has become a lightening rod for discontent on a number of fronts,” he said. “Strong majorities disapprove of the job he’s doing on the federal budget and spending (61 percent), in foreign policy (58 percent), on working with Congress (57 percent) and on immigration (57 percent).”

The poll was conducted in partnership with The Tarrance Group and Lake Research Partners.
