Voters Don’t Like Congress, and ‘Build Back Better’ Won’t Help
Fewer than a third of voters have a favorable opinion of Congress, and most don’t support the “Build Back Better” legislation now pending in the Senate.
A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that just 21% of Likely U.S. voters rate the Senate as doing an excellent or good job, while 47% give the Senate a poor rating. That’s even lower than ratings for the House of Representatives, which 30% of voters rate excellent or good and 45% rate poor. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
