Republicans favored slightly more than Democrats

More than 60% of all Americans are sick with the state of the U.S. economy and 70% believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, and another 80% feel that the country's political system is unsuitable, at least a recent poll reports.

Public approval for President Obama and U.S. elected officials are incredibly low, and it is expected that Republicans will benefit the most come November.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - This frustration has also impacted the country's top political leaders, with President Barack Obama's approval ratings hitting a new low at 40%, while congress is even lower at 14%.

Be a light in the darkness with "prayer and action."

"We're in the summer of our discontent," said Peter Hart, a Democratic pollster who conducted the survey with Republican pollster Bill Mclnturff. "Americans are cranky, unhappy... It is with everything going on in the world."

Public approval for President Obama and U.S. elected officials are incredibly low, and it is expected that Republicans will benefit the most come November.


But the discontent is different among Republicans and Democrats and Independents, Hart says that come November, Americans are no more likely to be united as before. "We're unhappy, but we aren't coalescing around an issue," he said.

This wide discontent is attributed to the Great Recession, as well as what many see as the failure of politicians to listen or care about the American people. 79% of polled individuals feel dissatisfied with the U.S. political system, and 71% believe that the economic problems that are facing the country are due to inefficient or corrupt elected officials in Washington.

"The public seems to have moved beyond the plaintive cry of 'Feel our pain!' to the more angy pronouncement of 'You are causing our pain!" said Democratic pollster Fred Yang.

Obama is doing even worse, with 42% approving of his handling of the economy, and 36% approving his foreign policy.

With the midterm elections less than three months from now, the poll finds that 44% of voters are preferring a Republican-controlled Congress as opposed to 43% who prefer Democrat control.

McInturff says that November is shaping up to be "a good Republican cycle, but not like the wave elections we saw in '06 or '10."
