The Mood Of America Last Weekend Before 2014 Mid-Term Elections

This is the national mindset the last weekend before the 2014 mid-term elections.

The lead story of today’s USA Today, on newsstands through the weekend: “Election Day nears and U.S. is rattled: Poll shows anxiety over Islamic State, Ebola, fewer jobs,” by Susan Page: “As Election Day nears, America is the Land of the Fearful.” The Financial Times cover has what looks like a hopeful headline, “Strong US growth beats forecast.” Then you get to the third graf: “But the details portray and economy that is steady, not accelerating.” And turn to Page 4, and the page-topping headline is: “US boom times as distant as ever.”
