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.
Harry Enten: “From 1974, when the Gallup data starts, to September 2009, the average approval rating for Congress in Gallup’s polling was 37%. That’s not good. President Donald Trump, who has been historically unpopular for a president, has had an average approval rating in the low 40s over the last year.”
“But that 37% is more than double the 17% average approval rating Americans have given Congress since September 2009. It’s not just that the average has been low, though — it’s how consistent the low ratings have been.”Save to Favorites
