Who has a better approval rating? Your local mosquito control, a root canal at the dentist, or Congress?
A new Gallup poll shows that just 20% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing. The vast majority, 75%, disapprove of the job Congress is doing. Congressional approval, particularly over the past few years, has not been high. Americans see Congress as a group of ineffectual politicians who are out of touch with their constituents.
DO WE THE PEOPLE LIKE THE GRIDLOCK? The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters feel it is better for the country if Congress works with Trump most of the time. Thirty-nine percent (39%) disagree and say it’s better if Congress opposes the president most of the time. Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Republicans think it’s better for the country if Congress works with the president most of the time, but 64% of Democrats disagree.
The United States Congress is in a state of confusion and more so, a state of decline. Cpt Stu Cvrk is a retired naval officer, a defense contractor, columnist and contributor on America Out Loud.
