The negativity about the current state of the US has a politically partisan split — Republicans stated that the country’s best days have already passed and Democrats say the best days have not happened yet. Seventy-five percent of Democrats gave positive reviews of how the nation will be five years from now, but only 15 percent of Republicans were positive — a 60 percent partisan gap.
Independents break 48% for 5 years from now, and 39% now.
