Americans less satisfied than in any other Gallup midterm poll, ever
"Gallup finds 21% of Americans satisfied with the way things are going in the United States at this time. If that figure does not improve considerably in the next two weeks, it would be the lowest level of U.S. satisfaction Gallup has measured at the time of a midterm election in more than 30 years of tracking this measure."
That's no surprise. We're in the worst economy that the poll has ever recorded. The closest runner-up is 1982, and sure enough, satisfaction was low then, too. But it doesn't bode well for Democrats next month, and it's not likely to change in the next two weeks.
