A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that despite the steady pace of hiring in recent months, 76% of adults lack confidence that their children’s generation will have a better life than they do—an all-time high. Some 71% of adults think the country is on the wrong track, a leap of 8 points from a June survey, and 60% believe the U.S. is in a state of decline.
Almost three-fourth’s of all American citizens think that their country is on the wrong track. And, sad to say, they are right.
The problem is that so few of them seem to remember what the right track is.
