More Voters Say Congress Doing a ‘Good’ or ‘Excellent’ Job

A new survey from Rasmussen Reports found that 25% of American voters believe Congress is doing a “good” or “excellent” job. Last April, 19% of U.S. voters believed Congress was doing well. 42% of voters believe Congress is corrupt, with 33% believing Congress is not corrupt and 25% unsure.

From Rasmussen Reports:

Democrats (36%) are less likely to believe most members of Congress are corrupt, compared to Republicans (44%) or voters not affiliated with either major party (49%).

Similarly, while 39% of Democrats think Congress is doing a good or excellent job, only 19% of Republicans and 17% of unaffiliated voters agree. Majorities of both Republicans (60%) and unaffiliated voters (53%) give Congress a poor performance rating, as do 23% of Democrats.

Fewer whites (25%) than black voters (25%) or other minorities (28%) rate Congress as doing a good or excellent job. Forty-nine percent (49%) of whites, 31% of black voters and 40% of other minorities give Congress a poor rating.
