Right track?

From the NYT:

In the face of economic upheaval in the United States, a record 89 percent of Americans now say the country has pretty seriously gotten off on the wrong track while just 7 percent of Americans say the country is going in the right direction, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll.
Much is made of the fact that 89% is a record for the 'wrong track' answer, but I have a more pertinent question, I think.

Who are the seven percent? What do they see going on that they like? Are they back-to-the-stone-age survivalists? Schadenfreude addicts? What's their story? I want to know.
