YOU DON’T SAY: 8 years after hope and change, voters are angry, anxious.

A stunning 79 percent of Americans now believe the country is heading in the wrong direction, a 15-point spike in the past year, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll. Voters are strikingly unhappy with the candidates who will be on the ballot this fall, with only 22 percent saying they would be proud to see Trump win and 27 percent to see Clinton.

Tom Brokaw said over the weekend that he thought “we’d be a different country by now,” a mere eight years after admitting that “we don’t know a lot about Barack Obama.”

Maybe this isn’t the “fundamental transformation” Tom was looking for.
