Obama's Approval Up -- Congressional Approval Is Not
Republicans like to brag about the president's job approval rating being upside-down. Well, that is ending. Four new polls have been done on the President's job approval rating -- and only one shows more disapproval than approval (by only 4 points).
The other three show the opposite -- one by 3 points, one by 8 points, and the other by 6 points. It seems that the President's job approval is improving. The same can't be said of Congress. Only one recent poll has questioned voters on Congress -- and it shows a disapproval of 84% and approval of only 13%. That's abysmal, and it has been that way for many months now.
Polls on presidential job approval:
NBC News / Wall Street Journal Poll (March 3-6) 1200 registered voters
ABC News / Washington Post Poll (March 3-6) 1000 adults
Gallup Poll (March 6-8) 1500 adults
Rasmussen Poll (March 6-8) 1500 likely voters
Poll on congressional job approval:
Gallup Poll (March 2-6) 1019 adults
