CNN reported Friday that a majority of Americans think things are going well in the United States, according to a new poll.
It’s the first time the CNN/ORC International poll has found positive appraisal of the state of the nation since January 2007.
It’s a slim majority. Fifty-two percent of Americans said things are going well and 48 percent said things are going badly.

Economic sentiments have improved over the past year, with a third of Americans saying they believe the economy is starting to recovery. About 24 percent said the same last year.
Forty-one percent say the economy has improved and 26 percent say the economic conditions are getting worse.
However, CNN reported men are more positive about the state of the nation and the economy than women. People in the Northeast and Midwest are more likely than the people in the South and West to say the economy is improving.

Authorities used a stun gun on a woman after she gouged a sheriff's deputy with her fingernails while her son was being arrested, a report said.
Manatee County Sheriff's deputies went to the home near Bradenton on Thanksgiving night to arrest a 19-year-old man for a domestic battery incident involving his mother.
But deputies said 45-year-old Victoria Shaw pushed the deputy three times in the chest and dug her fingernails into him. Deputies hit her in the left thigh and the back of her left knee with a stun gun to subdue her, officials said.
Shaw is being held at the Manatee County Jail on charges of resisting arrest and battery on an officer. It's not known whether she has hired an attorney.
The name of her son, who was also arrested, has not been released.Fri, 28 Nov 2014 08:14:51 -0500
