Poll: Only 3% of Americans Describe the State of Our Union as 'Strong'

Would your grandfather be proud of this news? A new NBC News poll shows that only three percent of Americans describe the current state of our country as "strong."

How can these three percent of survey respondents miss the fact that 10.4 million Americans are unemployed? It is no wonder that Americans are frustrated. How could they miss the fact that nearly half of the jobs created during the first year of the president's second term were in retail?

Clearly, some Americans are either unaware of the facts on the ground in our economy or they were just tired of answering poll questions. Perhaps the respondents just wanted to get back to eating their dinner.
