Per Fox News survey. Same as over past couple years, but the details are fascinating. Too much to bring all over and that would get it out of some context with sidebar notes. Go read it there. You will learn stuff.

Some 56 percent of voters say things are "going to hell in a handbasket." It was 57 percent a year ago and 58 percent in 2014, when the question was first asked on a Fox News poll.

That consistency masks some big movement among who thinks the world is going to hell -- and the party that controls the White House has a lot of sway in this. In 2014, only 48 percent of Democrats said things were going to hell compared to 70 percent who feel that way today. The reverse is true among Republicans: 71 percent said hell in a handbasket in 2014 vs. 42 percent now.

Meanwhile, most voters believe compared to 10 years ago, people in the U.S. behave worse in public (83 percent), are less courteous (78 percent), and the bonds that hold our nation together are weakening (81 percent).

It's the media's job to keep us on the edge of our seats, so they can sell advertising. Boring stories don't sell advertising, so crisis, crisis, crisis is what they are going to push.

Don't buy into it, the media is simply the government's tool to keep you scared and full of fear. We act irrationally when we're afraid.

My advice is to stop watching and reading it, watch for big things you care about like a death of someone famous, but other than that, shut it off, you'll be happier and thank me, and the result will be that it will be harder for them to effect you and control you.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken

Money quote.

There’s no gender or age gap: two-thirds of men (67 percent), women (66 percent), voters under 45 (68 percent), and those ages 45+ (66 percent) think political correctness has gone too far.
