A new Gallup poll finds that Americans are as negative about the country’s prospects as they have been in more than three decades. Americans are more upbeat in their predictions of where the U.S. will be in five years (48 percent positive), but this is the lowest rating since an August 1979 Gallup poll was conducted.

Gallop was wrong about the election, predicting a Romney win, at it is wrong here also.
Gallop is a conservative bought and paid for polster organization.

And yet their statistical estimate (they don't make "predictions") had Obama winning in 2008. Imagine that. Maybe use the Google next time?
