Right Direction or Wrong Track: 31% Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction

There’s nothing “conservative” about the direction America is heading, and a majority of our fellow citizens instinctively know that we’re on the wrong track. The numbers below should mirror votes for Republicans and Democrats. ‘R‘ voters should be those who know we’re going in the wrong direction. On the other side, ‘D‘ voters are low information voters or liberal dreamers or both. We’ll need a competent GOP to connect with the ‘wrong track’ voters and turn them our way. From RasmussenReports.com last week:

Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken the week ending Sunday, April 14.

Voter optimism in the nation’s current course is down three points from the previous week. Last week, it appeared to have recovered from a downturn prompted by the political impasse in Washington, D.C. over the so-called sequester budget cuts. Belief that the country was heading in the right direction fell to 28% in late February-early March as political leaders were desperately looking for ways to avoid even modest reductions in the growth of federal spending. Now that the threat to undo the sequester has passed, confidence in the country’s direction appeared to be returning to earlier levels but may be trending downward again.
