A few numbers
Some numbers from realclearpolitics:
“Congressional job approval”:
26.8 percent approve.
64.0 percent disapprove.
Let me just spell that one out for those of you with poor math skills: Almost 2 out of 3 Americans disapprove of the work their own elected representatives do.
“Direction of country”:
38.6 percent “right direction”.
53.8 percent: “wrong track”.
The president’s approval rating is still above 50 percent (52.5 vs 40.7). Within the last 9 months, the amount of people who disapprove of Obama has more than doubled – see the previous link.
