Default Congress is at 5% approval

Quote:
Rasmussen has the latest approval numbers for Congress, and it isn't pretty. Performance approval has been dropping and dropping, and has now hit an all time low of 5%.



Just when you think the numbers couldnít get any worse for Congress, the end of session debacle over the payroll tax extension comes along and drives perceptions of Congress even lower.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just five percent (5%) of Likely Voters rate the job Congress is doing as good or excellent. Sixty-eight percent (68%) view Congressí job performance as poor. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Thatís the lowest level of congressional approval ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports. However, in the larger sense, itís just a continuation of a downward trend as the percentage who give Congress good marks has remained in single-digits since mid-April.

A scant 1% says Congress is doing an 'excellent' job, with 4% rating Congressional performance as 'good' and an overwhelming 68% rating Congressional performance as poor. The most damning number, though, may be the 86% of respondents who say that members of Congress are more interested in their careers than in helping others.

And the reason I fear the government the most? Because the voters will reelect most of these people.

I find it very difficult to beleive that they have that kind of approval.

The idea that ANYONE thinks that congress is doing a good job boggles my mind.

Im pretty sure they work together. The Republicans stay firm no matter how outrageous their demands, then the Democrats cave it. Over and over again. Get money out of politics if you want to solve it.

That remark is the most outrageous... I don't really know what to call it...

I will simply say this. You are delusional. Do you have a clue what is really happening, are you in touch with reality?

The Republicans cave every time. EVERY time. The Democrats NEVER cave, it is the way they operate, it is part of their agenda, and as a matter of fact they blame the republicans for never getting anything done.

This is why Congress has such a low rating.

Do us all a favor. Learn what's going on in Canada before you comment on American politics.
