CNS | Gallup: Americans Who Think We’ll Be Worse Off in 4 Yrs Doubled in 4 Yrs – The percentage of Americans who think America will be worse off in four years has more than doubled in the four years since Barack Obama was first inaugurated as president, according to the Gallup poll.

In a survey conducted Jan. 9-11, 2009–concluding just nine days before Barack Obama’s first inauguration as president–Gallup asked American adults: "Do you think the country will be better off or worse off four years from now?"

At that time, 72 percent said the country would be better off, 20 percent said it would be worse off, 4 percent said it would be the same, and 4 percent said they had no opinion.
