Congressional Approval Rating at All-Time Low

Americans’ view of Congress hit an all-time low in June, sliding into single digits for the first time ever.

Americans’ view of Congress hit an all-time low in June, sliding into single digits for the first time ever, according to Rasmussen Reports polling data.

Only 9% of voters surveyed said that Congress is doing a good or excellent job, down from 11% the previous month. The majority of those surveyed (52%) said that Congress is doing a poor job.

Support for Congress among Democratic voters dropped from 17% to 13%. Among Republicans, congressional approval went up modestly from 7% to 8%. Only 3% of unaffiliated voters thought Congress was doing a good job, down from 6% the previous month.

One reason for the low result: 72% of voters think most members of Congress are more interested in furthering their own political careers, while 14% believe members are genuinely interested in helping people.
