Do You Think the US Is Facing Another Depression?


The CNN/Opinion Research Corp polled 1,000 people over the weekend in a survey asking if the respondents think another economic depression is likely to happen in the US. The pollsters gave respondents the following facts about the Great Depression of the 1930s before collecting their answers: Unemployment reached 25 percent, there were widespread bank failures, and millions of Americans were homeless and hungry.

Of the 1,000 responses, only 13 percent believe another depression is not likely at all, 29 percent feel it's not very likely, 38 percent said it is somewhat likely, and 21 percent said a depression is very likely. In an effort to see if the respondents gave answers reflective of a larger population, I'm asking you the same question: Do you think it's likely another depression will occur in the US?
