Congress Begins 2013 With 14% Approval

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

Americans give Congress a 14% job approval rating as the new year begins, the lowest since September of last year and one point below Congress’ 15% average approval for 2012, the lowest yearly average in Gallup’s history.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

I want to thank John C. Fleming (@RepFleming), Louisiana’s 4th District Republican Congressman, for inspiring me to look up the truth.


He posted the following tonight:

"Obama’s game playing (instead of leadership) on sequestration appears to be tanking his approvals. He just dropped from 51% approval to 46% approval."


Tanking? 51% to 46% is taking?


Either he (or his staffer) didn’t bother to actually look at the data, or they just don’t care about the truth and the facts. His post linked to the president’s daily (daily? really?) poll ratings. It was at 51% for the period Feb 26-28. That was last week. It went to 47% 2/27-3/1; still last week. It dropped one more point to 46% 2/28-3/2 where it remains as of 3/1-3/3/2013.


Wonder why he’s silent on the approval rating of Congress?
