SOTU Preview: Americans See Room for Improvement

Gallup puts tomorrow’s State of the Union speech in context with its comparison of key nationwide indicators from when President Obama took office in 2009 to 2014.

The bottom line: Americans consider the state of the union to be good, but could be better.

The most important issue facing Americans today: Government (vs the economy in 2009)

A general trend upward in public opinion on:

  • “Economic confidence.”
  • The way things are going in the U.S.
  • The prospect of finding a quality job.
  • Life Evaluation (those who are considered “thriving”).
