22% Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction, Ties Lowest Level of Obama’s Presidency

Twenty-two percent (22%) of Likely U.S. Voters now say the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken the week ending Sunday, April 17. That ties the lowest number of Obama’s presidency, last reached in mid-March.

Since President Obama assumed office in January 2009, confidence in the nation’s current course has ranged from a low of 22% to a high of 35% measured in early April 2009.

Seventy percent (70%) of voters now say the country is heading down the wrong track.  Since January 2009, pessimism about the country’s direction has ranged from 57% to 72%.

Most Republicans (88%) and voters not affiliated with either major political party (74%) believe the United States is heading down the wrong track. Among Democrats, 36% say the country is heading in the right direction, while 49% say it’s heading down the wrong track.
