Neither Republicans, Democrats, or Independents think very highly of Congress these days. The public's approval rating has sunk to a new low in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll on the subject, with just six-percent saying they think Congress is doing a "good" or "excellent" job. That figure tops the previous record low -- which was set last month -- when eight-percent rated Congress as "good" or "excellent."
Meanwhile, 61-percent would give Congress a "poor" rating for their efforts, which is up nine-percent from June. Nearly 70-percent don't believe the current Congress has passed any significant piece of legislation, and only eleven-percent think Congress has approved any bills that will bolster the quality of life for Americans.
