69 Percent Of Americans Say State Of Union Is ‘Poor’

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – President George W. Bush gives his State Of The Union address tonight (Jan. 23) but a lot of Americans are already stating their opinion.

And it’s not too good.

According to a Harris Interactive poll, 69 percent of Americans describe the current state of the country as “poor,” while 31 percent think it is either good or excellent.

Men are more likely than women to have a positive impression of things: 37 percent of guys think things are pretty good right now, compared to only 26 percent of ladies.

Finally, as you might expect, there is a partisan split – but not as much as you might think.

Although only 10 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of independents are happy with the current situation, 43 percent of Republicans feel the current state of the country is either fair or poor.
