According to a new NYTimes/CBS News Poll, the number of people who think the country is heading in the right direction has jumped from 15 percent in mid-January, just before the inauguration, to 39 percent today, while the number who think it is heading in the wrong direction has dropped from 79 to 53 percent. That is the highest percentage of Americans who said the country is heading in the right direction since February of 2005.
