Worthington, OH (PRWEB) July 22, 2011
With a balanced budget plan still unlikely to pass both houses of Congress and the president’s veto, Americans appear to be losing assurance in the government, according to the latest American Pulse™ Survey of 5,280 respondents. While elected officials work out a compromise to end the current debt crisis, voter sentiment remains dismal:
Current Sentiment Among Registered Voters:
This disappointment in the current state of the U.S. will likely affect the vote in 2012. Instead of revving them up, however, it appears the gloomy economy has disheartened Voters. Less than half (48.7%) are somewhat or very excited to vote in the 2012 Presidential Election. Excitement is higher for the Republican Party (60.5%), flat among Democrats (48.5%) and much lower for Independents (38.2%).
