UTICA, NY — Two-thirds of likely voters say the nation is headed in the wrong direction, the highest it has been since December of last year. Only 23% say the nation is headed in the right direction, while 67% say it is on the wrong track. The wrong track total is the highest since the 68% total found on December 14, 2010.
Also, President Barack Obama's job approval rating (42%) and the percentage of voters who say he deserves re-election (38%) are statistically unchanged from two weeks ago.
These results are from a July 1-5 IBOPE Zogby interactive poll of 2,159 voters.
