Congress' approval rating down to 10 percent (again)Submitted by go213mph on Wed, 08/15/2012 - 12:53
Always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when 9 out 10 Americans do not agree with the people who write our laws.
Congress' already-dismal approval rating sank again this month, tying its all time low of 10 percent, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.
"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 percent," a Gallup analysis said.
Gallup said it was difficult to pinpoint exactly why the rating had tied its low mark, recorded in February. The pollster has been asking about Congress for 38 years.
The economy, it said, is a major reason for the low marks, and "the fact that control of Congress is now divided, with a Republican majority in the House and a Democratic majority in the Senate, may provide an opportunity for Americans of all political persuasions to dislike some aspect of Congress."
