Just 7% Say Congress Doing Good Or Excellent Job

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Positive ratings for Congress remain in single digits as they have been for the past year of regular tracking. 

Just seven percent (7%) of Likely U.S. Voters now rate the job Congress is doing as good or excellent, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.  Sixty-three percent (63%) say Congress is doing a poor job. That's virtually unchanged from last month and consistent with regular surveying since April 2011. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters nationwide was conducted on June 1-2, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
