For Congress, how bad can the numbers get? Well Gallup has the new low.
Yup. Approval just 10%. and a whopping 86% dis.
You really have to work hard to get lower than the 19% Cheney racked up...and the 16% that even Hitler enjoys.
Here is the tracking chart:
Seems this number has been falling for the past year or so with no relief in sight.
Congress' current low ratings continue a generally negative trend. The 17% annual average for 2011 is by one percentage point the lowest yearly average Gallup has recorded. More broadly, the average congressional job approval rating since 1974 is 34%, signifying the generally poor esteem in which the American people have held Congress over the past decades.I bet with the upcoming Payroll Tax Insane Hissy Fit about to enter Phase II at the end of the month, we may see single digits.
Good work, all. Wonder if even super PAC money can save your sorry asses.
