Gallup: Americans Give Equally Low Ratings to Both Parties in Congress

Gallup.com-poll

Gallup tells us 58% of Democrats approve of Dems in Congress.  Republicans give them 8%.  Average that, and you get 32%.

Independents give an approval rating to the Dems of 24%  The same story for the Republicans.

Third Party, Independent and unaffiliated voters taken as a whole, disapprove of Congress more than voters who affilate with either of the two Stale Old Parties.

“…conducted March 25-27, 2011, with a random sample of 1,027 adults, aged 18 and older, living in the continental U.S…”  ” 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.”

    Obviously neither major party represents America. With luck, Americans will wake up and vote for those that really represent them.

    It is time for all independent Americans to join Gov. Ventura in his call to abolish all political parties in this country.

    This post is irrelevant. It’s not like the Green and Libertarian Parties put in any serious work to build up membership. They think running a couple of candidates every election cycle is the way to go.

    The problem is that people do not put Country first, but rather their Party first. For example, the anti-war groups and libs had been crying foul about Iraq and Afghanistan wars, but they keep quiet and some even support bombings in Libya. Go figure…
    Hypocrisy is everywhere, on all levels. Still, I disagree on abolishing political parties. We do need to belong (directly or indirectly) to a group of people who share our views on politics, economics, etc..

    Then why do multiple political parties thrive in most other countries? They use a parliament?
