The article presents the results of 2008 and 2009 polls of U.S. consumers that were conducted by Public Agenda, Rasmussen Reports and the Pew Hispanic Center. The polls asked consumers to rank the level of organization and disorganization that they encountered at U.S. polling places and other common consumer venues, how they felt the U.S. economy would influence the lives of their children and how many Hispanic Americans were concerned about the possibility of losing their homes due to a U.S. recession.
