Description

Only 18% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, matching the low point in 30+ years of Gallup tracking congressional approval. The other 18% rating came in 1992, when term limit fever was sweeping the nation. The nine-percentage point drop in Congress' approval rating from last month to this month has come among Democrats and independents, and now Democrats rate the Democratic-controlled Congress similarly to Republicans.
