CHICAGO - It may not be news in your circle of acquaintances, but it's official when Rasmussen surveys line up with what you, your friends and family are saying. Overall, as America heads into the year end holiday season, Americans are in a bad mood about the president, the nation's direction and the headlines about the ObamaCare debacle. Rasmussen reports this weekend that:
- Positive views of the president’s economic leadership have fallen to their lowest level in 18 months.Just 32% of Likely U.S. Voters now give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of economic issues.
- Twenty-five percent (25%) think the country is heading in the right direction. A year ago, 41% felt that way.
- Despite assurances from the Obama administration that problems with the federal health insurance exchange website have been fixed, 59% of voters think it’s unlikely the current problems with the new national health care law will be fixed within the next year.
So how tough will it be to have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year?
