Poll indicates record dissatisfaction with country’s direction

The level of people’s dissatisfaction with the direction their country is going in has reached a record low, a poll indicated on Wednesday. Such is the opinion of 46% of Czechs according to the STEM research agency, which also stated that people were much more concerned with the economic crisis than with the current constitutional crisis that nixed hopes of early elections. STEM reported that in recent years there have been three relatively equal groups of people who were either satisfied, dissatisfied, or thought things were “going nowhere.” This year however, the agency’s research suggests that contentment has dropped fairly swiftly in the course of the year, from 23% in May to 14% in September, marking the lowest point for that question since 1993.
