With the impeachment buzz dying down a tad since Wednesday night it is important to gauge the feelings of the American people and how they view the direction of this country. One of the key indicators during a Presidential election is how voters view the direction of the country. For a sitting President the hope is that a majority of Americans feel the country is headed in the right direction, but that doesn’t seem to be the case at the current moment.
From Rasmussen Reports:
“Thirty-eight percent (38%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey for the week ending December 12.“
“This week’s finding is down a point from a week ago. By comparison, this number ran in the mid- to upper 20s for much of 2016, President Obama’s last full year in office.“
The key word in this survey is likely voters and not registered. The President doesn’t have any hope if this number stays this way. If there is disgust among the American people this could be a good sign for a third party movement.
