Polling shows that most Americans feel worse off now than they were at the start of 2019. Newsweek Reports:
About 44 percent of Americans think the United States is in a worse place now compared with the start of 2019, according to a survey by YouGov, an international data and analytics group.
In terms of the "general state of the country," only 16 and 17 percent of the more than 25,600 respondents said the country was in a much and somewhat better place, respectively.
Those numbers fluctuate depending on the respondent's age, wealth and political affiliation. Democrats are particularly unhappy with the state of affairs, which is likely related to a Republican-controlled White House or even President Donald Trump's impeachment.
Sixty-four percent of Democrats thought the U.S. is now in a somewhat worse or much worse place in comparison with this time last year, according to the survey. By contrast, only 13 percent of Republicans felt the same way. Independents were somewhere in the middle, but still more unsatisfied with the country at year's end (43 percent) than satisfied (31 percent).
Those results mirror a CBS News poll taken around this time last year, when 65 percent of respondents felt the country was on the wrong track, largely because of "the state of politics and how the government is functioning," according to the survey.
