Man of Myth and Legend
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).
