Well do we mean America specifically or that it, like the rest of the world, has embraced globalisation? I'm sure many people from the past would be horrified at what they see nowadays, particularly as the world has changed a lot.
Do we mean morals or just that it's come a long way? Or how much influence it has on the world rather than being something like a smaller country like any European state or even like the UK currently?
Well he is a person from an old world very different from today. His ideology and ethos was good for the time, times change, so his opinion of today would be outdated with the ways of the world. So the question isn't what would his opinion be, the question is, would it matter?

America was meant to be devoid of religious interference in the public domain, separation of church and state. That has quite obviously failed, with the country's motto on banknotes 'E pluribus unum' [Out of many, one] changed to 'In God we trust'.
Corporations being people, the 1% owning most stuff, clampdowns on freedom, the harsh reality of what's left of the American dream...really the list goes on.
