Poll: Anger at government soars
By TAL KOPAN
As the government shutdown continues in Washington, Americans are angrier with how things are going than they have been in years, according to a new poll.
Overall, 87 percent expressed unhappiness with the direction of Washington, with 44 percent saying they were “dissatisfied” and 43 percent saying they were “angry” in a new CBS News poll out Thursday night. Only 8 percent said they were “satisfied” and 2 percent said they were “enthusiastic”.
The 43 percent anger mark is higher than any other time in CBS’s polling on the issue since 2010. In March, anger was only at 30 percent.
