Talk About Lame … 111th Congress Job Approval Rating Worst in Gallup History … 13%
The 111th Congress putting the “lame” in lame duck Congress …
83% disapprove of Congress and these clowns inflict a $1.1 trillion Omnibus spending bill on the American people as a parting present. The 111th Congress got this worst job approval rating ever, THEY EARNED IT!
As the lame duck 111th Congress thankfully fades into the sunset, Gallup polling know has this partisan Democrat controlled Congress with the worst job approval rating in Gallup history at 13%. That’s it, 13 lousy percent and frankly they are not deserving of that. The poll was conducted between Dec. 10-12, has a 4 percent margin of error; however, after the latest outrage perpetrated by the Congress with the $1.1 trillion, earmark, pork filled Omnibus bill, had Gallup polled now the job approval would have been in single digits.
Americans’ assessment of Congress has hit a new low, with 13% saying they approve of the way Congress is handling its job. The 83% disapproval rating is also the worst Gallup has measured in more than 30 years of tracking congressional job performance.
The prior low approval rating for Congress was 14% in July 2008 when the United States was dealing with record-high gas prices and the economy was in recession.
As reported at CNN, a CBS News poll released earlier this month indicated that 17 percent of Americans approved of how Congress was doing its job, with more than seven in ten saying they disapprove.
However, for some reason as the Democrat controlled Congress flounders with an inept and pathetic 13%, WAPO-ABC for some reason wants to poll on things that have yet to happen. So aptly discussed at Questions & Answers, what the hell is up with the Washington Post-ABC poll that claims, just 41 percent of respondents say the GOP takeover of the House is a “good thing.”
In the new poll, just 41 percent of respondents say the GOP takeover of the House is a “good thing.” About 27 percent say it is a “bad thing,” and 30 percent say it won’t make any difference. Most continue to say that the Republicans in Congress are not doing enough to compromise with Obama on important issues.
The shameful and comical WAPO-ABC title was, Public is not yet sold on GOP. Really? Could some one explain to me how someone could be sold on something that does not exist yet, hmm? The American public is literally saddled with the worst Congress in Gallup polling history, yet the bias WAPO-ABC poll analysis must have used a Magic 8-Ball to come up with the conclusion that the public is not yet sold. Please, as compared to the outgoing 111th Congress, only if the next Congress contained the KKK, al Qaeda and child sex offenders could they have a lower approval.
Has any Congress more ignored the will of the people and spitefully passed legislation that has done untold harm to America.
