Is the U.S. Headed in the Right Direction?


Polling Report has an interesting data series on Direction of the Country.

Here is the question: "In general, do you think things in the nation are headed in the right direction, or have they gotten off on the wrong track?"

The polls were conducted by Bloomberg, CBS News/New York Times, NBC News/Wall Street Journal, ABC News/Washington Post, Gallup, Pew, and other polling agencies.

The Bloomberg National Poll (show below) was conducted by Selzer & Company. Sept. 20-23, 2013. Sample size was 1,000 adults nationwide. The margin of error is ± 3.1.

To produce the table and graph below, I reordered the rows in date chronological order so that the most recent recent dates are last. These results are from Bloomberg polls, with dates as shown.
