When asked “how do you rate the way Congress is doing its job?” more than half 54 percent said Congress is doing a terrible job. Only 17 percent of Americans said, Congress was doing a “good” or “excellent” job.
That is a decrease of 19% from April when their job approval rating was at 21% according to Rasmussen.
just 29 percent of voters said Congress is likely to seriously address the most pressing issues facing the nation. Sixty-eight percent said it is unlikely lawmakers will get their act together. Democrat voters tended to believe in Democrat-dominated Congress more than Republicans, but unaffiliated voters were not at all impressed, according to the poll.
“Twenty-seven percent of Democrats rate the way Congress is doing its job as good or excellent, compared to just 12 percent of Republicans and 9 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party,” the poll report states.
Democrats (44 percent) were also more than twice as likely as Republicans (20 percent) or unaffiliated voters (19 percent) to believe Congress will seriously address the most important problems facing the U.S.
The poll comes as the Congress continues to vie over the infrastructure bill and the Democrats move towards socialist ideology.
