Faith in Congress hits new low

in Uncategorized by

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds the American public’s dissatisfaction with Washington has reached new heights.

A whopping 83% of Americans disapprove of Congress’ job, which is an all-time high in the survey. And 57% voters say they would vote to defeat and replace every single member of Congress if they had such an option on their ballot ­– another all-time high.

Meanwhile, President Obama has seen his job-approval rating dip to its lowest level since August 2011, “when the debt-ceiling showdown wounded almost every Washington politician.”
