The understanding that renders this Gallup poll a useless exercise, of course, is that every one of the 76% who are dissatisfied is unhappy for a different reason.
Some because we’re not far enough Left. Some because we’re not far enough Right. Some because we’re too far in the wrong direction. Some just because we are old and cranky and certain the whole bloody planet has stripped its gears … although on that point I may just be speaking personally.
If there was a consensus among the three-quarters of us why we are not pleased, there would be a massive political push in that direction. Do you feel any strong political currents?
