Additional Trend Information

A total of 71 percent of American voters are "dissatisfied" with the way things are going in the nation today, including 41 percent who are "very dissatisfied," according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today. Only 2 percent are "very satisfied," with 26 percent "somewhat satisfied."

Looking at the federal government, 49 percent of voters are "dissatisfied, but not angry" with Washington, while 27 percent are "angry," the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Only 2 percent are "enthusiastic" about the federal government, while 21 percent are "satisfied, but not enthusiastic."

Only 2 percent of voters trust government "almost all the time," while 13 percent trust government "most of the time." Another 51 percent trust government "some of the time" and 34 percent trust government "hardly ever."

Voters disapprove 81 - 12 percent of the way Republicans in Congress are doing their job and give the Republican Party a negative 31 - 58 percent favorability.

Disapproval of Democrats in Congress is 66 - 27 percent and the Democratic Party gets a negative 40 - 50 percent favorability.

The Tea Party gets a negative 26 - 45 percent favorability.

"Most American voters sing sadly, along with The Rolling Stones, that they are unable to find any satisfaction with the way things are going in the nation or with the federal government," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"More than 25 percent of voters go beyond dissatisfaction to anger with government. And very few voters think Congress is doing a good job."

Voters are divided 44 - 44 percent on whether the Republicans or Democrats should control the U.S. Senate. Voters also are divided on control of the House of Representatives as 46 percent want the Democrats in charge and 44 percent want Republicans. College Tuition Assistance

American voters support 61 - 34 percent "major new spending by the federal government" to help students pay tuition at public colleges. Support is 85 - 12 percent among Democrats and 57 - 37 percent among independent voters, with Republicans opposed 59 - 36 percent. All age groups support the measure, especially voters 18 to 34 years old, who back the idea 76 - 21 percent. Support is the same among voters with or without a college degree.

"Higher education on Uncle Sam's dime gets a big thumbs up from Americans and an even bigger high five from younger voters," Malloy said. Abortion

Abortion should be legal in all cases, 23 percent of American voters say, while 33 percent say it should be legal in most cases. Another 26 percent say it should be illegal in most cases and 14 percent say it should be illegal in all cases.

Abortion should be legal in cases of rape or incest, voters say 78 - 17 percent and voters say 85 - 9 percent it should be legal to save the life of the mother. There is almost no gender gap on either issue and no opposition from any party, age, racial or income group.

But American voters say 65 - 28 percent that they could support a presidential candidate if they agree with the candidate on other issues, but not abortion. Men could support the candidate 72 - 22 percent and women could support the candidate 59 - 33 percent.

Voters oppose 51 - 41 percent cutting off federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Democrats oppose a cutoff 80 - 13 percent, while Republicans support a cutoff 66 - 25 percent. Independent voters are divided, as 47 percent support a cutoff and 44 percent oppose it.

American voters disapprove 53 - 45 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing.

Voters oppose 55 - 25 percent the proposed nuclear agreement with Iran.

From August 20 - 25, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,563 registered voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and the nation as a public service and for research.
