This number should really be higher than 46%…
Surprise, surprise — according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey, nearly half the public thinks we’ve lost our way:
If America’s founders came back today, would they be impressed or disappointed?
A new Rasmussen Reports shows that 36% of American Adults think the Founding Fathers would consider the United States a success. But a plurality (46%) believes the Founders – a group that generally includes George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, among others – would view the nation as a failure instead. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Well, that’s a rather depressing thought.
