A new poll shows how Americans think the Founding Fathers would view America today.
Rasmussen Reports released the poll this week, which found that most Americans thing the Founding Fathers would be unhappy with America today.
“More than ever, Americans this Fourth of July think the Founding Fathers would be disappointed in the nation they established 246 years ago,” Rasmussen said.
The poll found that the number of Americans who think the founders would be unhappy has increased.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 27% of American Adults believe the Founding Fathers would consider the United States a success, down from 34% a year ago,” the group said. “Fifty-three percent (53%) now say the Founding Fathers – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, among others – would view America as a failure. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided.”
This poll comes as recent surveys shows that most Americans think the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction.
