    and yet he won, no longer and forever more the liberals can never, ever complain about how a campaign is run. Obama set the standard very, very low with his low information nasty campaign. Hats off to the the propaganda ministry of the Obama campaign, the MSM.

    Gallup: American Optimism Hits Lowest Point Since Carter Administration « CBS DC

    WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – Fewer than four-in-10 Americans (39 percent) rate the US in a positive manner – the most negative feedback the country has produced since 1979.

    A new Gallup poll finds that Americans are as negative about the country’s prospects as they have been in more than three decades. Americans are more upbeat in their predictions of where the U.S. will be in five years (48 percent positive), but this is the lowest rating since an August 1979 Gallup poll was conducted.

    What do we have to be Optimistic about? We have a President who thinks he is the 2nd coming, a Senate who refuses to do their job, and a house dominated by an Opposition party who would rather stand up for Social Issues, than do anything about the real Financial Issues we face.

    This country is fucked, down hill is all we have left, thanks to Both Parties.

    In U.S., Fewer Watch Obama's Second Inauguration Than His First

    Thirty-seven percent more hopeful about next four years, down from 62% in 2009

    by Jeffrey M. Jones

    PRINCETON, NJ -- Thirty-eight percent of Americans interviewed Monday night said they watched or listened to the inauguration ceremonies as they happened; another 27% saw, read, or heard news coverage of the events. That is down considerably from 2009, when a combined 80% watched the ceremonies live (60%) or saw news coverage of them (20%). Reported viewership of Monday's ceremonies is similar to what Gallup measured for George W. Bush's second inauguration eight years ago.


    I seriously think that the number who watched or listened is greatly exaggerated.

    Is that the same Gallup that had Romney winning the election?

    It has always taken a leader, like Reagan, to bring the two parties together. What we are seeing is the results of a no experienced narcissist.

    Do you ever get your facts right dude? Gallup only had Romney up a couple of times, and did not have him up in the week before the election. Their final Poll before the election was almost exactly like the out come of the election.

    wait why am I bother to argue with a fucking idiot. NM

    Not for at least a week before the election. He is just talking right out his ass, like he always does.

    Could it be that most Americans know politicians from both sides are dirty, rotten corrupt bastards, and the elite of the private corporate world are no better? And thus, our country is fucked no matter which party is in power?

    Yeah, I'd say America's troubles are nowhere near solved also. But who would I trust to fix it? The guys who couldnt even beat OBAMA of all people?
