33% Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Thirty-three percent (33%) 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, January 6.

The latest finding shows no change from the previous week but is down 10 points from 43% the week prior to President Obama’s reelection, the highest level measured in over five years of weekly tracking.  Still, only 24% said the country was heading in the right direction this time last year.
