As America stews through a slew of potboiler issues, according to what citizens feel, we’re up shit creek without a paddle. In the latest Ipsos poll out today, just a quarter of respondents think the US is heading in the right direction — 59-percent perceive we’re on the ‘wrong track.’
Of course, in the break-down of the numbers, 80-percent of Republicans claim the ‘wrong track’ national heading, while Democrats are in their normal middle of the road — 43-percent say we’re going in the right direction, 39-percent say not, and the shit is in between.
According to Ipsos, Americans are most concerned about health and financial shit:

Odd, crime and corruption, along with morality, both carried just 5-percent of applicants saying they were important problems — WTF!
And most-likely explains nothing.
Once again, and here we are…
