I'm going to call bullshit on this one without even seeing the data, the questions, the demographics, or anything besides the fact that it comes from the New York Times. This is the same journalistic rag that divulged a secret program for tracking terrorists that was vital to our national security. This is the same journalistic rag that pimped the Plame fiasco/non-outing of a CIA desk-jockey whose asinine husband bragged she was in the CIA. This is the same journalistic rag that has lied about the economy, lied about the Administration, lied about Iraq, lied about the military, and kept lying over and over again anytime they thought it would further their leftist agenda.
I won't ever link them unless I absolutely have to. I won't buy their paper, read their website, or believe anything they say or write. They have zero credibility and should be bankrupt financially since they're already morally bankrupt. With their declining readership, the financial part is coming soon and I will toast their demise.
Actually, I believe this one. Problem is, of those who think we're moving in the wrong direction, roughly 50% think we need to move righter and 50% think we need to move lefter.
It's like all those approval polls of Bush they used to trot out. You were supposed to infer that everyone who was unhappy with Bush thought he was too conservative. But how many of us were frustrated with him because he was not conservative enough?

The survey comes as housing turmoil has rocked amid an economic downturn. The economy has surpassed the war in Iraq as the dominating issue of the U.S. presidential race, and there is now nearly a national consensus that the United States faces significant problems, the poll found.
That's why I called bullshit, for the very reasons you describe... they take these numbers and say they're so bad because we're unhappy the socialist agenda is being stalled. They don't make the connection that they rose sharply after the 2006 elections brought us "the most ethical Congress ever" and that's a bigger reason to think we're moving in the wrong direction. It's a bullshit survey because it doesn't measure what they're trying to say it measures.
