Nearly Nine in Ten Americans are Unhappy with the Country

by admin

The nation is at a pivotal time right now. In many ways, America is more divided than it’s possibly ever been; a lot of this deals with politics, COVID-19, and differences of opinions on ways to handle various issues.

Many left-of-center Americans argued that having Biden as the nation’s president would bring people together; yet, the first six days of the 46th president’s term has been anything but unifying. As a matter of fact, viewpoints and outlooks on the Biden administration are largely linked to partisanship and political views.

There are consequences for ongoing and widespread division in America. According to Newsmax, almost nine in ten U.S. citizens aren’t pleased with the current state of the country.

The General Consensus Regarding the United States

In a fresh Gallup poll, the findings show that Americans across the political spectrum are not happy.

66% of Republicans, 62% of Independents, and 73% of Democrats noted themselves as ” very dissatisfied” with the present direction of things in the country. Just 3% of American adults in the nation polled themselves as “very satisfied,” whereas 66% noted their extreme dissatisfaction.

The general consensus also determines that there are a series of factors leading to such high levels of dissatisfaction. January 6th’s insurrection on Capitol Hill is a major factor, as are disputes regarding the 2020 presidential election and the presence of COVID-19.

Findings from Gallup’s poll were gathered and documented between January 4 and January 15.

Bringing the Country Together

For all the talk of bringing America together, Republicans and Democrats still have very different outlooks on the appropriate means of accomplishing this goal.

The political right has criticized Biden for backing the Trump impeachment trial, shuttering thousands of blue-collar jobs by canceling Keystone XL pipeline, etc. Republican leaders such as Kevin McCarthy also charge that despite Biden speaking of unity in his inaugural address, he hasn’t followed through.

Democrats, on the other hand, appear more than pleased with the Biden administration. Many folks on the left believe that the 46th president will ultimately bring the country together, despite his polarizing policies and executive orders. Democrats have also dismissed conservatives’ complaints about the Biden administration thus far.
