SHARE A new low: Only 29% say America's future will be better than past

There’s all sorts of doom and gloom surrounding America, at least if you believe a new poll, which says only a small portion of voters say the nation’s best days are ahead of us.

A new poll from Rasmussem Reports shows that only 29 percent say the country’s future will be better than the past, and that’s the lowest it’s sunk to in the eight years the survey has been conducted.

Also, more than half (52 percent) are conviced the best days are behind us; 18 percent are unsure.

Even with all the negativity, the polol shows that 86 percent of adults say they’re proud to be Americans.
