The Wall Street Journal and NBC have a new poll out, and—surprise, surprise—Americans are in a seriously foul mood about pretty much everything. Consider the midterms the "JetBlue election," says Democratic pollster Peter Hart. "Everyone's hurling invective and they're all taking the emergency exit." Some highlights:
- Americans are about evenly split on Obama's overall job performance, but 60% don't think he's got the right policies to fix the economy.
- The percentage of people who think positive thoughts about the GOP fell to 24%, a record low.
- Democrats don't fare much better, and their frustrated voters are more likely to sit out this election than Republicans.
- Those who think this Congress is among the worst of all time is at an all-time high.
- Two-thirds don't think the economy has hit bottom.
- Nearly 70% feel less confident about the Afghan war, and less than half approve of Obama's handling of it.
