A Gallup poll conducted in June reveals 55 percent of American adults believe the best days for the country are “ahead of us.”
Those who said the best days are “behind us” came in at 41 percent.

The last time Gallup asked this question — December 2012, when President Barack Obama was president — only 47 percent of respondents answered “ahead.” That survey’s results also showed 50 percent of respondents answered “behind.”
