(CNS News) -- A new survey by the Monmouth University Polling Institute shows that only 29% of Americans think the country is headed "in the right direction," and a strong majority of 65% thinks America is on the "wrong track."
In the Sept. 9-13 telephone survey, U.S. adults were asked, "Would you say things in the country are going in the right direction, or have they gotten off on the wrong track?"
Only 29% said the right direction, which is down from 42% in January 2021, a 13 point decline.
65% said the wrong track, which is up from 51% in January, an uptick of 14 points.
In another question, the survey asked, "Do you approve or disapprove of the job Joe Biden is doing as president?"
Only 46% said they approved, which is down from 54% in January 2021. Also, 46% said they disapproved of Biden's job performance, which is up from 30% in January.
When asked about Congress, only 22% of Americans said they approve of its job performance while 65% said they disapprove.
