    Congress' Job Approval Rating Worst in Gallup History

    Congress' Job Approval Rating Worst in Gallup History

    PRINCETON, NJ -- 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.
    Wow, 13 percent, and yet they're still trying to ram-rod the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill before many of them get kicked out on their keesters.

    Nice job, Nancy and Harry. You're forever sketched in American history for this. Right up there with Benedict Arnold and Al Capone.

    rassmusen had them polled at 9% approval not too long ago.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    I'm more surprised that 11% actually approve of their performance.

    Is anybody surprised?? And still they are looking to pass a 1,900-page spending bill loaded with earmarks. Sorry bastards.

    Least I know why I like Gallup Polls:

    Survey Methods
    Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Dec. 10-12, 2010, with a random sample of 1,019 adults, aged 18 and older, living in the continental U.S., selected using random-digit-dial sampling.

    For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.

    Interviews are conducted with respondents on landline telephones (for respondents with a landline telephone) and cellular phones (for respondents who are cell phone-only). Each sample includes a minimum quota of 150 cell phone-only respondents and 850 landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas among landline respondents for gender within region. Landline respondents are chosen at random within each household on the basis of which member had the most recent birthday. Samples are weighted by gender, age, race, education, region, and phone lines. Demographic weighting targets are based on the March 2009 Current Population Survey figures for the aged 18 and older non-institutionalized population living in continental U.S. telephone households. All reported margins of sampling error include the computed design effects for weighting and sample design.

    In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.

    Really! Who the heck are these people who approve of their performance? Mothers and spouses?
