Why an Outsider may be President

The formulas that are driving the public to look to an outsider for president are seven years of belief the U.S. is overwhelmingly on the wrong track and congressional performance is woefully inadequate.

Americans have rated the country on the wrong track since President Obama’s inaugural in 2009. The rating currently stands at 29 percent “right direction” to 63 percent “wrong track,” or a 34 percent negative spread.

Congressional approval is now a 60 percent negative, with 15 percent approving congressional job performance and 75 percent disapproval. Again, the last time congressional performance only slightly improved was in early 2009 and then it was only 15 points negative.
