Skip to comments.Approval of Congress at All-Time Low for Midterm Election Year, Says Gallup
Posted on 09/21/2010 2:56:51 PM PDT by Justaham
Public approval of Congress now sits at 18 percent, lower than it has been in any prior midterm election year since Gallup started polling public approval of Congress in 1974, according to a USA Today/Gallup Poll conducted Sept. 13-16.
In March, approval of Congress actually sank to 16 percent, the second-lowest approval rating Congress has ever received in the Gallup poll. After that, it climbed to 23 percent in April and then started declining again, hitting 21 percent in May, 20 percent in June, 20 percent in July, and 19 percent in August.
Congress current approval rating is now approaching Gallup's record low of 14%, measured in July 2008, and is already worse than the lowest congressional approval score in a midterm election year, 21% in 1994 and 2006, Gallup said in its poll analysis published Monday.
This year's low approval ratings for Congress are a potentially ominous sign for President Obama and the Democratic majority in Congress, the polling company said in a June analysis of its congressional approval survey. Gallup has found greater party seat change in Congress in midterm elections when Congress has had low approval ratings.

I just can’t think how stupid you have to be to be part of that 18%.
I’m kinda wondering who stands in this 18 percent group. They have to be alcoholics, illegal aliens who don’t even speak the language, everyone from San Fransisco, mental patients, and chit-chat crowd from MSNBC.
Despite that they still somehow manage to keep winning.
Blacks, queers, islamists and illegals.
Heh. Gallup usually seems to favor the status quo. Must be really cold outside.
Union members, government employees, career welfare collectors.

Follow the money. You’ll find that one way or another Congress puts dough in their pockets.
They are people that do not pay close attention to politics and just get all their info from MSM sound bites and headlines.
Now that’s a real shocker! Just don’t understand these Americans... Damn, they haven’t been reading the Constitution have they?
Almost all of our elected Congressmen and Senators are either idiots or are just out for themselves, power and money. I vote idiots - after all even idiots go for power and money...
The dregs of humanity.
People like Michael Moore, Dawkins, Bill Maher, Janeane Garofalo, Matt Damon, Sean Penn....and other losers that think they know everything.....
The entire DC area, Chicago, and California.
The Congress and their staff have relatives ya know.
These are people who once belonged to Heaven's Gate!
That’s what happens when you try to spend a free people into slavery.
We need to stay vigilant and wary of voter fraud and election rigging because it's their only hope.
If they steal these elections then we have only one other option.
It's the Pelosi-Reid Congress.
May its accursed name live forever in infamy.
I'm certain they will.
Thank Justaham. Zero’s numbers should be lower, but the partisan morons who always pull the straight-ticket lever (so to speak) are a hard core bunch of a-holes who will never abandon him — and every last one of them is a racist.
