Steep Decline in Satisfaction

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

From Cheryl Russell, Demo Memo

Satisfaction with the way things are going in the United States has plummeted since February, according to a Gallup survey. “The decline since February came in two waves,” Gallup explains. First was a decline due to the spread of coronavirus. This was followed by another decline after the killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis.

In February 2020, 45% of Americans aged 18 or older said they were satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S., a 15-year high. By early June, only 20% said they were satisfied with the way things are going. The decline in satisfaction occurred primarily among Republicans.

Percent satisfied with the way things are going in the United States at this time:

February 2020

Republicans: 80%

Democrats: 13%



June 2020

Republicans: 39%

Democrats: 6%
