Gallup Poll: Informed Americans Rate Both Parties in Congress Worse
A Gallup poll shows that the more Americans know about government, the more they disapprove of the Democrats and Republicans in charge.
“The fundamental finding is that Americans who know the most about how Congress operates are not only the most negative about Congress in general, but also about the Republicans and Democrats in Congress specifically. This reinforces the general conclusion that criticisms of Congress — and the partisan leaders in Congress — are based on a realistic assessment of what these entities are doing rather than a lack of awareness of or interest in what they are doing.”
