Take the left plug wire and put in the right side, and vice-versa. See if the problem changes sides. If it doesn't, it's a fuel or compression issue. If it does, it's an ignition issue.

Fuel/compression problems: blocked main jet, torn diaphragm, broken throttle cable....

Ignition: worn out spark plug caps, old spark plugs, broken coil, bad connections....
