Congressional Approval Ratings Hit Record Low

On the basis of a recent poll, Rasmussen Reports writes:

Voter unhappiness with Congress has reached the highest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports as 71% now say the legislature is doing a poor job.

* * * * *

Only 10% of voters say Congress is doing a good or excellent job.

Nearly half of Democratic voters (48%) now give Congress a poor rating, up 17 points since January. The vast majority of Republicans and voters not affiliated with either party also give Congress poor ratings.

Although Rasmussen's polling methodology tends to skew its results toward the conservative side, it is a highly respected polling organization, and its result undoubtedly captures the extremely low regard in which Americans now hold Congress.
