Congress Hits All-Time Low

Ken AshfordCongressLeave a Comment

Congress is on track to register its lowest annual average approval rating for any year since Gallup began measuring congressional approval in 1974. The existing lows are 18% recorded in 1992 (based on one measure that year) and 19% recorded in each of three years: 1979 (based on one measure), 2008 (based on monthly ratings), and 2010 (based on monthly ratings).

Right now, Congress is polling at a 13% approval rating.
