Mike Huckabee News
Jun 10 2013
A new Rasmussen poll has more bad news for Congress: Only 6 percent of Americans think they’re doing a good or excellent job. Their approval rating is getting pretty close to the margin of error. Meanwhile, 64 percent say they’re doing a poor job. So if Congress is about as popular as a cyanide smoothie, how do incumbents keep getting reelected? Well, the same poll found that 46 percent approve of the job their own representative is doing. Only 41 percent disapprove. So apparently, in nearly every case, voters approve of their own Congress member…it’s just all those other idiots who are messing things up.
President Obama is doing better in the polls than Congress – but then, who isn’t? Several new polls show the scandals are taking a toll on Obama’s trustworthiness. A Wall Street Journal/NBC poll finds that 55 percent have doubts about his Administration’s overall honesty and integrity. And a Bloomberg News poll finds that 48 percent believe the IRS targeting of conservative groups was politically motivated. Only 40 percent believe Obama’s claim that he just learned about it. Still, while his approval rating is falling, it’s still above 50 percent. Most Americans are trying to believe Obama, but it’s getting harder and harder. His supporters might have to trade in their “Hope and Change” posters for one of those posters from the “X-Files” that reads, “I Want To Believe.”
