Of that, 68% slapped it as “poor.” And, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, they’re not jacked up about next year. Just 10% think it will be the “best year ever,” and a measly 9% think it will be “excellent.”
Republicans, some fighting an uphill battle to prove enough voter fraud to block Biden’s inauguration, have a good excuse to consider 2020 a bad year. Throw in the coronavirus and economic crisis, and they should top Democrats for considering it the worst.
But Rasmussen found that Democratic gloom about 2020 edged Republicans by 2 points.
Overall, the pollster found the numbers jarring.
In an analysis, Rasmussen said, “For most Americans, New Year’s Day is just another holiday, but they welcome it this year because it will put the dreadful 2020 behind them. Fifty-nine percent (59%) of American adults consider 2020 a poor year, by far the worst rating a year has received in over a decade of regular polling.”
