Depressingly low American outlook polling numbers are actually on the upswing…

  • 27% of Americans think the United States is headed in the right direction, according to a new Gallup poll released on Monday. Sadly, that’s actually up two points from last month, and the numbers are divided pretty much exactly along the partisan lines that you would expect. Out of a pool of 1,015 adults, 47 percent of registered Democrats said they are satisified with the course currently being plotted by the United States, while only 9 percent of registered Republicans said the same. source

Here’s what’s interesting about this Gallup poll: It shows that, for the first time since July, Obama’s job-approval rating (47 percent) is higher than the disapproval rating (45 percent).

Gallup poll: Americans favoring pot legalization at record levels

  • 50% of respondents want to see marijuana legalized — the first time it’s reached a full majority
  • 46% of respondents would rather that marijuana remain illegal … a number that’s been declining for years source

» Will we reach a tipping point? Quite possibly, the study suggests: “If this current trend on legalizing marijuana continues, pressure may build to bring the nation’s laws into compliance with the people’s wishes,” the summary noted. Considering the current state of affairs in California, public outcry is completely understandable. Think it’ll eventually happen?
