Satisfaction With the Direction of the U.S. Drops Precipitously
Thirty percent of Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S., marking a 12-point drop since the prior reading in early March.

A monthly drop this large has only been recorded twice in the past two decades:

  • in October 2008, days after the U.S. stock market crashed and the House rejected the Bush administration's initial attempt at financial rescue legislation
  • in July 2016, after a string of mass shootings -- including one at an Orlando nightclub in June, which was, at the time, the deadliest in U.S. history -- and multiple shootings of black men by white police officers, followed by retaliatory mass shootings of Dallas police officers in early July
