Survey says Americans admit to being bitter.

The workplace poll also found that nearly half (45.1 percent) of US workers admit to being "bitter" because "the political system has caused a deterioration of [their] economic circumstances." Nearly half (47.5 percent) of 30-49 year olds surveyed report feeling bitter, while only 38.4 percent of 18-29 year olds feel bitter.

"While Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama took a lot of heat for his 'bitter' comment, this poll shows that workers clearly are in fact 'bitter' over the political system and the economy," said Frank Kenna III, president of the Marlin Company, a global workplace communications firm.
