It will be entertaining watching right-wing bloggers defend this:
Americans are more dissatisfied with the country’s direction than at any time since the New York Times/CBS News poll began asking about the subject in the early 1990s, according to the latest poll.
In the poll, 81 percent of respondents said they believed “things have pretty seriously gotten off on the wrong track,” up from 69 percent a year ago and 35 percent in early 2002.
I am gonna suggest one of two possible defenses. First, they can do the old tried and true Hugh Hewitt mainstay that “statistics have a left-wing bias.” That is always a crowd pleaser.
If that doesn’t work, then I suggest a switch to “yes, people are really upset at the work of the Democratic led Congress.” That would tie into the laughably absurd claims made earlier at Red State to label the current economic downturn as the “Pelosi recession.”
Personally, I just want to know what wold have to go wrong for the other 19% to recognize things are not going well. Locusts? Rivers of blood? Human sacrifice?
