US headed in wrong direction: Poll


Thu Oct 13, 2011 7:5PM GMT

The majority of Americans believe their country is headed in the wrong direction.
A newly released opinion poll shows that the majority of American citizens believe that their country is headed in the wrong direction with little economic prospect.

According to a joint survey by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News, released on Monday, 74% of the respondents said that the US was "off on the wrong track,'' while only 17% believed the country was headed in the right direction.



Thirty-two percent of respondents also believed that the US economy would get worse, compared to only 21% who believed it would get better. Some 45% said it would stay the same.

The survey included interviews with 1,000 adults from Oct. 6 to Oct. 10 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

The survey found a plurality supporting the "Occupy Wall Street'' demonstrations against the financial sector in New York and elsewhere across the US.

Some 80% of the respondents said they had heard of the protests. Of those, 37% said they tend to support the demonstrations, and 18% said they tend to oppose them.

When asked about the US government, only 1% said the government was "healthy" and "vibrant," while 17% said it was "OK and needs only small reforms.''

However, 47% said government was "not working well and needs large reforms,'' while 35% called it "unhealthy" and "stagnant."
