Another Bush legacy - loss of confidence for the nation

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Crushing the American spirit and dreams for the future: Mission Accomplished.

According to the poll, 65 percent say they feel less confident that life for their children's generation will be better than it was for them. In December 2001, the last time this question was asked, respondents — by a 49-42 percent margin — said they were confident life would be better for their children.

In addition, only 27 percent think the country is headed in the right direction, while 58 percent say they are less confident the Iraq war will come to a successful conclusion.

And among those who believe that the nation is headed on the wrong track, a whopping 81 percent believe it's part of a longer-term decline and that things won't get better for some time. Just 12 percent think the problems are short-term blips.

If the Democrats are unable to capitalize on this in the fall, the party might as well just pack their bags and disappear.
