It’s taken 5 years to get back to this point (pdf), and it took Obama less than 6 months to do it.
The exact numbers: 48% think we’re headed the right way, while 44% think the opposite.
So, again, note to Republicans…simply saying Obama is wrong will not work. Because Americans are apparently buying what he’s selling so you have to offer a more compelling vision in the marketplace of ideas. And holding a Tea Party rally won’t change that.
