According to a new Gallup Poll Americans worrying about the economy has hit a 19-year-low.


Prior low mentioning economic issues was 13% in May 1999

Dissatisfaction with government, at 29%, tops the problem list

37% are satisfied with the way things are going, little changed

Now, you might point out the dissatisfaction with the government being the top issue but it is quite misleading. Republicans who were polled claimed they were dissatisfied with Democrats in the government. While Democrats were dissatisfied with Republicans in the government.
