New Poll Says Not Much Love For Congress
The latest survey of what Americans think of Congressional members is not good.
If the approval ratings get any lower, we will be talking about single digits. A new Gallup poll shows Congressional approval is at a record low ten-percent.
The trend is not all that surprising for recent months as the 10 percent is even lower than the not so high 13 percent approval rating that Congress had in January.
The current level is a notch below the previous record low of eleven-percent support. Gallup says the average Congressional approval rating last year was 17-percent. The House of Representatives' highest support level was 84-percent in October 2001. That was one month after the World Trade Center attacks.
