Majorities of Americans think the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction and they use words like “downhill,” “divisive,” “negative,” “struggling,” “lost” and “bad” to describe it, according to an NBC News that finds a doleful outlook around the country.
Americans say their income is falling behind the cost of living and that political polarization will likely continue. Interest in the midterm elections is down as people sour on politicians in both parties.
Pollsters said Democrats enjoyed a 1-point advantage over Republicans, 47%-46% when they asked people which party should control Congress after the November contests.
However, President Biden’s approval ratings are stuck in the low 40s and Republicans enjoy a double-digit lead in enthusiasm — 61% of Republicans are very interested in the upcoming elections compared to 47% of Democrats.
“There is nothing but flashing red lights and warning signs for Democrats,” Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies, a Republican pollster who worked on the survey with Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates, told NBC.
