72 percent of Americans disapprove of GOP in Congress: Poll

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/09/15/378808/americans-disapprove-of-gop-in-congress/


"Seventy-two percent of Americans disapprove of Republican members in Congress with 47 percent saying they “strongly” hate the political party, according to a recent poll.

The poll conducted by the Washington Post and ABC News said 61 percent of respondents are also unhappy with the Democratic party and 54 percent are dissatisfied with President Barack Obama.

Americans’ approval of Republicans has been abysmal for the past years, and that people around the world disliked Congress as a whole."



I found the last paragraph reassuring.

"According to the poll, 60 percent of Democrats approve of their party's members in Congress, while only 30 percent of Republicans have the same idea."

1. In spite of the numbers we will end up with another Republican House and possibly Senate.

The will of the people continually loses out.

2. Do you really think so? Maybe the House and I'm not sure of that, people have seen that they

are bat shit crazy but the Senate should hold.

3. We will have another Republican House thanks to Gerrymandering and maybe a Republican Senate.

Too many neo-confederates on the Government dime. The Government shutdown should have ended all Republican hopes.

6. I hope you are right! I will stay away from hot wires in November.

Will also be driving the elderly to the polls.

5. because Democrats don't vote and

repukes do. It is simple. GOTV! Register 1 person to vote and make sure they do by taking them to the polls. It's empowering for both of you.

7. Yep, just because people (repubs) are unhappy with them, doesn't mean they will get voted out.

I've talked to a couple repubs here that hate Chuck Grassley. But they still vote for him.

8. And who does the media say is unpopular?

The black guy @ 45% approval.

9. It's a challenge.

You can't just spray for 'em, because that would be toxic to Democrats, too.

10. Same Old Story

In general, Congress is always unpopular.

Yet, 96% of incumbents always get voted in again.

Despite this poll, things will probably work out pretty much the same this year.

13. We need to see/drill down into this poll ...

 

because these consecutive paragraphs seem in conflict:

While people hate Congress, they are much more likely to hold a favorable view of their own member of it. And if a Republican candidate can run a good campaign and avoid being too closely associated with the less-savory elements of his or her national party, that ‘R’ next to his or her name isn't really much of a burden.”


And:

According to the poll, 60 percent of Democrats approve of their party's members in Congress, while only 30 percent of Republicans have the same idea.

14. Doesn't matter...

 

Polls after polls has shown that Republicans are expected to retain the house and take over senate. Oh wait, these same polls once expected Romney to take the White House in landslide....

This is real confusing. These same pollsters and media wanted to see Republicans take over entire congress so it can create more drama which translates into more news feed for capitalists to create more news, more bullshot, more cover up, and giddy up by causing viewers to feel depressed and hopeless.

America's MSM is all about abandon the hope and spread more terror. It benefits them more.
