Dem Congress Still At Low Approval
The latest from Rasmussen has the public ranking Congress poorly. Very poorly:
Voters don’t like what they’ve seen so far as Congress works to lift the troubled U.S. economy.
Just 12% say Congress is doing a good or excellent job, and 54% rate their performance as poor in the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Congressional approval has fallen a long way since the inauguration of President Bush eight years ago. At that time, 35% said Congress was doing a good or an excellent job. Just 18% said poor.
Only 23% of voters say it is very likely that Congress will address the serious issues facing the nation in the near future, a drop of seven points from two weeks ago. Eleven percent (11%) say Congress is not at all likely to address serious issues.
Another reason you should be doing a political blog Molson. You're mind works in fantastic ways!
