President Trump more popular than Congress

Trump must go on offense

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.

Only 34 percent of Americans agree with him, while 62 percent favor moving on, including 47 percent of Republicans, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Friday. This is the lowest job approval rating Congress has received from Republicans in 2017. Seven in 10 say they disapprove of Republican leaders in the legislature. And not only do 78 percent of Americans want the Trump administration to do what it can to make ObamaCare work, but that includes 52 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of Trump supporters.

The Hill reported that the poll suggests that Republicans themselves are evenly divided with 44 percent to 44 percent on whether the Republican-dominated congress has done well or failed so far. They say the GOP-dominated Congress has so far failed Americans.

August 3rd - 6th Glen Mills, PA conducted this nationwide poll of 1,111 adults at random on behalf of CBS. "At a minimum, they show that a substantial number of Republicans are amenable to violations of democratic norms that are more flagrant than what is typically proposed (or studied)".

Most (60%) of the public say that President Trump and Republicans in Congress control the government and are responsible for any problems with the ACA going forward, twice the share (28%) who say President Obama and Democrats in Congress are responsible for such problems.

Congress is now on its August recess without any major legislative achievement.

68% of those surveyed meanwhile dubbed the current Republican controlled congress a failure, a substantially higher proportion than those who said the same about Congress at this point in 2007 and 1995. A majority (56%) say it's not likely that Republicans will be successful in passing their own health care bill, the first time that figure has topped 50% in CNN polling. Sixty-nine percent of Americans agreed with this plan, compared to just 29 percent who wanted more efforts to repeal the law.
