Poll: Majorities of Republicans and Democrats Say the U.S. Is ‘In a State of Decay’

Less than 10 percent of likely voters overall say America is in a “state of progress” going into the 2022 midterms.

More than three-quarters of likely voters believe the United States is “in a state of decay,” according to a new poll by the Trafalgar Group for Convention of States Action, a grassroots organization aimed at convening a convention to amend the U.S. Constitution.

The poll, conducted in December, asked a single question: “Do you believe American society and culture is in a state of decay or a state of progress?” Just over 76 percent of respondents answered “state of decay,” while 9.8 percent answered “state of progress.” Another 13.4 percent said they were unsure.

Republicans and voters who identify with no party or a third party were the most pessimistic. Just over 85 percent of Republican respondents and 81.8 percent of independents or other party voters chose “decay.”

But even 61 percent of Democrats answered “state of decay” while just 15.4 percent said “state of progress.” Another 23.6 percent of Democrats said they were unsure.

When broken down by race and ethnicity, 79.5 percent of white voters chose “decay” over “progress.” Among black and Hispanic voters, 66.4 percent and 68.7 percent respectively answered “decay.”

Mark Meckler, CEO of Convention of States Action, said the Democrats’ level of pessimism surprised him, as did the high numbers among black and Hispanic voters in particular. Noting blacks and Hispanics tend to vote for Democrats, Meckler said the poll points to “a distinct lack of voter enthusiasm” going into the 2022 midterm elections.

“When you tie all of the polling we’ve been doing together, you see the same kind of trends,” Meckler said. “Democrats have lost black and Hispanic support on big issues like the response to COVID-19, the economy, inflation, the supply chain, and the withdrawal from Afghanistan.”

“We’re looking at a big shift in November,” Meckler added, suggesting a six to eight point swing to the Republicans in the upcoming congressional elections. The polls show voters have “a sense of complete disconnect of the elites from the American people.” That disconnect, he added, is “part of decay.”

“I’ve been to 48 states in the past two years,” Meckler told American Greatness . “I’m hearing a lot of doom and gloom out there.”

The survey of 1,076 likely voters was taken between December 17 and December 21 and has a margin of error of 2.99 percent. Read the report below.

A shame this site has go to hell.

Enjoy your discourse with the person who believes he’s in charge.

For me, it’s just not worth it to try and bring a semblance of intelligence to this site.

Seems your his next target. Soon enough he will put up topics and be the only person responding to the topic.


Oh cry! Boo Hoo hoo!

Ahem, back to the op- America’s been in decline for thirty years, yet in the last 15 it’s really sped up. As a teacher I can tell you the dumbing down of our schools has been spectacular. Fear of anyone being left out of the self esteem gavage has cause bar lowering to the point where a student can truly learn nothing at all useful and still graduate.

Sorry Lou you had to deal with that loser, I smack the bully around but I can only do so much online. Don’t let him get to you… I’ll handle the punk.

You are such a duschebag that you are not worth the effort!
