The survey by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center says that nearly 6 in 10, or 57 percent, say the country is not better prepared for another disaster like a hurricane.

Roughly equal numbers of Democrats, Republicans and independents share that gloomy outlook.

The poll also finds that nearly 7 in 10 think progress has been made rebuilding New Orleans and the Gulf.

People in the South say they feel most strongly about it, with 75 percent of them saying progress has been made.
