Majority says current Congress a failure so far

Majority says current Congress a failure so far

Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have earned the ire of most Americans, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with almost seven in 10 (68%) judging the Republican Congress a failure so far after last month's repeal and replace plan died in the Senate.

Approval for US Congress among supporters of the Republican Party has fallen to a new low for 2017, with the rating now standing at 16 percent, a survey by the Gallup pollster revealed on Wednesday. Even three quarters of people who approve of Trump say they disapprove of Congress (76%) and a plurality (48%) says the GOP-led legislature has been a failure. Fifty-six percent said they would support it if both Trump and Republicans in Congress supported a postponement.

President Trump, meanwhile, has a job approval rating of 38 percent, according to CNN.

Message to President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans: Stop trying to scuttle the Obama health care law, and start trying to make it more effective. "Struggling put our children's goals out of reach and health care costs go up, but Jose Felix Diaz supports Trump's every move, including his plan to slash Medicare, charge older Americans an age tax, and cut coverage for pre-existing conditions".

The GOP-controlled Senate failed to pass a health bill before it left for a summer break last week. After using Twitter to blame McConnell for last month's Senate failure despite years of GOP vows to repeal it, Trump suggested Thursday that McConnell should perhaps step aside if he can't push that and other legislation through his chamber.

But he remains confident those who can afford such prices will find their way to Vegas for the fight. The duo will throw down in the boxing ring over 12 rounds at the T-Mobile Arena.

"Several unsuccessful attempts by Congress this year to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act did nothing to bolster its already poor image", Gallup notes of the latest numbers.

Now, Young is talking about bipartisanship as he faces the reality that Democrats are gunning for him in a state where Trump's approval is sinking and neither can boast a major legislative achievement.

Almost six in 10 say they favor a national health insurance program, even if it means higher taxes (58%). One in seven (15%) focus on the economy, 11% say immigration, 8% say foreign policy and 8% name Donald Trump. That could be a bad sign for Republicans as they prepare to defend their House and Senate majorities in the 2018 elections.

For example, 6 in 10 Republicans and Trump backers want the GOP to continue its repeal and replace drive in Congress.

The poll was conducted nationwide by phone on August 2-6 among 1,017 USA citizens. The margin of sampling error for results among the full sample is plus or minus 3.6 percentage points, it is larger for subgroups.
