bad economy in USFrom CNN: The vast majority of Americans think things are going badly in the country, according to a new poll. Seven in 10 people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say things are going badly, with only 30 percent saying things are going well. “It’s been 16 years since the public gave the country’s condition such a bad rating: January 1992, to be precise, in the last year in office of the last president named Bush,” CNN pollster Keating Holland said. “Seventy percent is a lot worse than two years ago, when 48 percent thought times were bad and the Republicans lost control of Congress,” CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider added. …
“Voters do believe either Clinton or Obama would handle the economy better than McCain, in both cases, by 53 to 42 percent. Not as big a margin as you might think with the country in such a bad mood,” Schneider said. (etc.)
