Congress Job Approval Back Down to Pre-Election Levels
According to a new Gallup poll, public approval of Congress has dropped down to where it was right before last fall’s elections.
According to Gallup’s monthly update on job approval of Congress — in a March 11-14, 2007, national poll — 28% of Americans approve of the job being done by Congress and 64% disapprove. This marks a substantial change from January and February, with approval down nine points and disapproval up nine points.
The current reading suggests that Americans are reverting back to their pessimistic attitudes of last year, when Congress approval ratings were in the 20s for much of the year.
That was one short honeymoon.
