President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address in just four days, but what do Americans think about our country? According to the latest Fox News poll, the outlook of most Americans is grim.
When it comes to the economy, more than half – 52% – think the worst is yet to come. Only 40% say the worst is over. A 58% majority thinks the federal government has become too powerful and is restricting American freedoms. Only 38% say they are comfortable with the government’s role right now. It gets worse – when asked about the current power of the United States, 48% said the country is weaker and less powerful than it was 5 years ago. That’s twice as many as the 24% who see the country as stronger and more powerful.
So what do you think? Is the country weaker today than it was 5 years ago? Sound off!
