Only 31% of Likely Voters Believe that America's Best Days Still Lie Ahead

Hourglass - IllustrationThe main headline right now on the Drudge Report is:

"IMF: Age of America Nears End"

Drudge's headline is referencing a report from the International Monetary Fund in which the IMF contends that China's economy will become the largest in the world (in "real terms") by 2016.

That's right - the IMF is on record as saying that the United States has just five more years until they are no longer the world's largest economy.


It's news like this that has many Americans feeling depressed about the future of their beloved nation.

Rasmussen Reports recently conducted a national telephone survey of Likely Voters - these Likely Voters were asked if America's best days were yet to come or in the past.

Just 31% of the participants in the survey said they believed that America's best days were yet to come.

53% of the survey participants said that "America's best days are in the past", while 16% were undecided.

Rasmussen Reports notes that the "America's best days are in the past" side is at its highest level in the past four years.


Can the nation fix its problems and become an even stronger nation moving forward, or are the best days of the United States moving farther into the distance in the rear view mirror?
