A new poll is now showing that only 29 percent of Americans currently believe that the country is headed in the right direction.
As The Hill reports:
Fewer Americans say the country is headed in the right direction, according to a new Monmouth University poll.
The survey found that only 29 percent of adults said the U.S. is on the right track, down from 38 percent who said the same in a July poll.
The new survey also revealed that 65 percent of respondents said the country is going in the wrong direction, up from 56 percent two months ago.
Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said the handling of the spike in COVID-19 cases and the deadly U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan likely contributed to the latest survey results.
The poll was conducted in mid-September among 802 participants and a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
