Satisfaction With U.S. Direction Drops With Trump Election
After a low of 17% of the public, last July, being satisfied with the way things are going in this country, the satisfaction number was growing. It had improved by 20 points shortly before the election (to 37%). The election of Donald Trump took care of that, with the satisfaction quickly dropping by 10 points. It looks like nearly three-quarters of the public thinks Trump's election will not improve things.
The chart above is from the Gallup Poll -- done between November 9th and 13th of a random national sample of 1,019 adults, with a 4 point margin of error.
