Poll: Founders Ashamed Of 2011 USA?

The Coeur d'Alene Press published a recent poll that I found interesting. Basically, it asked what the Founding Fathers would think, if they could see America today. Overwhelmingly, respondents said that they'd be ashamed at what this nation has become -- 73% voting that way. Only 6% said the Founding Fathers would be proud of what this nation has become. The remainder fell somewhere in between those extremes. What do you think?

Question: What would the Founding Fathers think of what this nation has become today?
