  • 6% Rate Congress’s Performance as Good or Excellent

    Congress earns its lowest performance ratings in months, while fewer voters than ever think members of Congress actually listen to them.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just six percent (6%) of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress is doing a good or excellent job, its lowest positives since last June. Sixty-three percent (63%) rate Congress' job performance poorly. Still, that's down 12 points from an eight-year high of 75% last November amidst the troubled rollout of the new national health care law. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
