New Poll Shows Democrats With An 8 Point Lead
These charts reflect information in the latest Monmouth University Poll -- done between April 26th and 30th of a random national sample of 803 adults, with a 3.5 point margin of error.
It shows that the public is still very dissatisfied with the Republican-controlled 115th Congress. Only 17% approve of the job they are doing, while 71% disapprove -- a negative gap of 54 points.
And the tax plan the Republicans touted is unlikely to save them. About 44%disapprove of it, while 40% approve. They needed far better numbers than that, and to their dismay, it looks like the numbers are getting worse instead of better.
This means the Democrats are currently favored by 8 points (49% to 41%).
