Bill Hemmer cites new poll that says 11 percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing.
And WHO is in charge mind you?? Hemmer said this was Rasmussen I believe. And that it's the lowest they've ever polled ANYTHING?!
It was Gallup!
WHY aren’t they THIS upset with OBAMA?
Obama should have a poll rating of 0.
Gallup did it!
KSDK — A new Gallup poll shows that only 11 percent of Americans say they have a great deal of quite a lot of confidence in Congress, which is down from 17 percent in 2009.
The poll was conducted July 8-11.
Half of Americans say they have very little or no confidence in Congress. That’s up from 38 percent in 2009. It’s the highest since Gallup first asked the question in 1973.
The poll also found a 15-point drop in the high confidence in the presidency, down to 36 percent from 51.
Yes it was Gallup -
Imagine that .. HAHA
It couldn’t be Obama’s fault...
This must somehow be Bush’s fault.
Oh but Joe Biden says the economic recovery is going smooth
No, it's because we're a country of "racists."
Maybe Gallop is well aware they skewed the generic poll, and this is their way of sending a warning message to the Dems. Dem-leaning pollsters are walking a fine line. They don’t want to depress the base, but they have to let the Dems know it’s bad. As Nov approaches, the dichotomy will probably be even more pronounced,.
It is a simple matter of the decimal point...
It is not "11.0%
It is "1.1%
There ya go!
Or stated another way,......89% disapprove of the lying, cheating, venal, treasonous Congress.
I don't understand how this could be. 45% don't even know what Congress is or does. ;_)
Drudge has this up in a headline. Here's the link.
Hee hee hee - yup - GALLUP.
I assisted in these numbers because I took this poll..WOO HOO!!!
That is just what I was thinking, although on second thought 1.1% is to high. How about it should be 0%, and who are the stupid 11%, and where do they live, because I want to move as far away from them as possible.
Must be Bush’s fault.. must be Bush’s fault.. must be Bush’s fault.
Oh yeah.. those tax cuts for the rich... are now tax cuts for the middle class.. now that the Dems have to keep them LOL
These buffoons know that politics is local, and local name recognition goes a long way to get their votes.
They can poll nationally at 11% and still poll in the mid 40’s in their states. Toss in the illegal vote, and they come very close to not having to work at all to keep their seats. Heck, toss is some convicted felons to count your votes, and they can probably dip down to 5% approval nationally.
That’s a scary thought.
A large percentage probably think the Republicans are still in control!
If this doesn’t make Gallup look like ash holes nothing will. Yesterday Gallup embarrassed itself by releasing its “generic ballot” poll saying Democrats lead by 6 points!
So if both of these numbers are true we have nothing to worry about because the people who put the Democrats up 6 while giving them an 11% approval rating are way too stupid and lazy to show up.
If the poll showed record high approval the media would be all over themselves reporting how the first female SOTH was responsible.
I know they won’t be fair so it’s up to us....
CONGRATULATIONS NAZI PELOZI! You have driven Congress to the lowest approval rating EVER! And you did it as a woman!
LOL!! Best line yet!!
Unfortunately....these 11% are amongst us....there is no getting away from them! Also, the percentage of those who think congress is just ducky is probably higher.
You'll just have to live with it ('em).
