Yes, Cory L is right. Congress approval rating is at 11%. Guess who is in charge of Congress?

The Trump base is angry at Congress and the Democrats should constantly remind them that the GOP is and has been running the show...and they are the problem!

During this lull in the campaign...a few ad on TV and radio in swing areas and even some red areas ought to keep reminding folks that the GOP is running the show and they have decided that they weren't going to do anything to help the people if it helped the President.

1. This is a meaningless poll.

When people are polled about Congress as an overall group it's usually not very good.

When people are polled about their individual congressman, they usually poll much higher.

2. Why don't people understand this?

Congress has had low approval ratings for years. However, when people vote, they don't vote for "Congress", they vote for the name of their representative.

We have long been at the point where we should name names.

At least President Obama says, "The Republicans in Congress...".

3. It's always the other guy that sucks.

Just like how it's not wasteful pork spending when it goes to your district...
