The Nation : Most Americans Satisfied

The early months of 1986 are being called the “era of good feeling,” with a record number of Americans expressing satisfaction with the way things are going in the nation and in their personal lives. The latest Gallup Poll shows two-thirds (66%) of all persons interviewed saying they are satisfied with what’s happening in the United States, the highest percentage recorded in the seven years this measurement has been taken, up 15 points since last November. The low point in this trend occurred in August, 1979, when only 12% were satisfied with the way things were going in the nation while 84% were dissatisfied.
