Congress Has 9% Approval Rating

Maybe if, while Obama is busy doing things, Congress actually did something besides roadblock everything, they wouldn’t be at 9 %.

In a poll released Tuesday, just nine percent of Americans said they approve of the job lawmakers on Capitol Hill are doing. The all-time low is down 2 points from an 11 percent approval rating just a month ago, and is the first single digit level since the question was first asked in 1977.

According to the poll, which was conducted between October 19-24, Americans also have less trust than ever in the government’s ability to make the right decisions: Just one in ten Americans currently say they trust the government to do what is right all or most of the time – down from 23 percent who said the same just a year ago. That figure – at just 1 percent – is a record low since the CBS News/New York Times poll first asked the question in 1976.

Eighty-nine percent of Americans – a record high – say they trust the government only some of the time or never.
