Job Approval For Congress Remains Very Low
The job approval for Congress has crept out of the teens, but still remains very low. It is currently only 24% approval. All of the slight improvement is due to Republicans, who now give Congress 43% approval. It remains low for Independents (22%) and Democrats (12%).
Will the numbers improve for this Republican-dominated Congress? Not if they actually do some of the things they want -- repealing Obamacare, cutting Social Security and Medicare, keeping minimum wage from becoming a livable wage, cutting EPA by a huge amount, etc.!
These charts are from a new Gallup Poll -- done between March 1st and 5th of a random national sample of 1,018 adults, with a 4 point margin of error.
