The Economy

I’ve been pretty amazed at the percentage of people who think the country is on the “wrong track,” which has reached 70% or more in recent polls. But maybe that’s not such an “amazing” concept at all.

Mori Dinauer at TAPPED cites this Washington Post/ABC News poll‘s “astounding” finding that 90% of people have a “net negative” view of the economy. We’ve been overwhelmed by media coverage of the bad economy for the last six months, so you’d have to think that that number would make its way towards 100% evenutally. After all, at a certain point, when you’ve been blanketed with stories of the falling dollar, rising prices, and a collapsed housing market, the idea that the economy is not doing so well takes on a why-is-the-sky-blue quality.
