Congressional Approval at All-Time Low
Today Gallup released a new poll that showed the approval of Congress tied an all-time low of 10%.
Although Americans have generally been more negative than positive in their assessments of Congress over the past four decades, opinions have been especially negative in recent years — and approval has again in August fallen to the record-low reading of 10%, last measured in February. Americans’ views of Congress are so bad that it has now been more than a year since Gallup’s monthly assessment was as high as 20%.
With Congress passing the President’s Healthcare plan even though the majority of American’s consistently opposing the bill, and Congress’ continued out of control overspending, it is no wonder that only 1 in 10 citizens’ approve of the job Congress is doing.
