Most disappointed American public yet

A new Gallup poll finds that only 9% of Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the United States, which is the lowest such reading in Gallup Poll history, easily beating the 12% recorded in 1979.

The reason is simple: the economy. Almost 7 in 10 Americans mentioned some aspect of the economy as the most important problem facing the country today.
