Note to McCain, Obama: Nearly everyone thinks we're on the wrong track
No wonder everyone wants to be the candidate of change. In a new Time/Rockefeller Foundation poll, 85% of those who replied believe that the country is on the wrong track.
Among blacks and Latinos, dissatisfaction levels are even higher: the figure among blacks is 96% and among Latinos it's 88%.
The solution? As Time reports, the public seems to want big government. In the poll, 82% favor public works projects and 70% say more government programs should help people now struggling.
In the meantime, families are tightening their budgets. Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed -- 64% -- said they cut entertainment or vacation expenses this year.
