Solid majorities of Americans are pessimistic about the current direction of the country and believe their own actions determine their financial well-being.

These findings are drawn from The Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll, which over three years has sought to understand the American experience and attitudes on the changing economy and to give voice to the concerns and views of middle class Americans. Conducted by Ed Reilly and Jeremy Ruch of FTI Strategic Communications, a communications-strategy consulting firm, the poll surveyed between 1,000 and 1,200 adults.
