Pelosi’s Reign: Least Popular Congresses in Decades



Text  



Not sorry to see you go!

Gallup:

The 111th Congress received an average 25% approval rating from Americans over the course of 2009 and 2010. While this is similar to the 23% average approval rating for the 110th Congress spanning 2007 and 2008, it is among the lowest average approval ratings for a Congress that Gallup has recorded in the past two decades.

The disapproval averaged 66 percent. As recently as the 108th Congress (2003–04), legislators had an average closer to even: 44 percent approve, 48 percent disapprove. In fact, no Gingrich- or Hastert-led Congress ever polled as poorly as either of Pelosi’s Congresses.
