  • 26% Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction

    Following the terrorist massacre at an Orlando nightclub, only 26% of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey for the week ending June 16.

    Still, that’s down just one point from the past two weeks. Thirty percent (30%) or more said the country is heading the right way for five out of the first seven weeks this year after tracking in the mid-20s nearly every week during the second half of last year.  But the weekly finding has now been back in the 20s since mid-February.
