Respondents to a recent survey favored a word of the three-letter variety, “bad,” when asked to summarize their feelings about the economy, but a four-letter profanity worked its way in among the top 15 choices. In the American Pulse survey of more than 6,000 adults, “bad” garnered 11.9 percent of the responses, followed by the more vernacular “sucks” and then “poor” at 6.3 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively.
“Terrible,” “depressing,” “sad,” “horrible,” “scary,” “worried” and “disappointing” rounded out the top 10 with responses ranging from 4.1 percent to 1.7 percent. “Crap” earned 11th place on the list, followed by the most optimistic response among the top 20, “hopeful,” with 1.6 percent, and then an undisclosed profanity, at 1.5 percent. An American Pulse spokeswoman confirmed the expletive totaled four letters.
