Lost Our Mojo

I continue to be fascinated by these right track/wrong track poll numbers, though I don't think I've ever quite been able to explain why. Only 15% say right track!

Almost half of Americans (47%) say the economy is one of the two most important issues for the government to address, up from 41 percent who said so in February This is one of the highest numbers for any issue in recent time. Further back, just over one-quarter of Americans (28%) say the War is one of the two most important issues while 17 percent say it is Health care. One in ten each says Iraq and rising oil and gas prices (10% each)

It could simply be that more people are feeling economic pain than the bumper sticker numbers from the data suggest, but it seems to me that there's just something deeper. We don't feel awesome anymore.
