Floridians may be divided on their political preferences for president and governor but they all agree they don’t like Congress. Congress’s approval rating is just 11 percent, with 83 percent disapproving of the job Congress is doing. Remarkably, in polling 310 Floridians 40 and older, the survey failed to find a single one who said they “strongly approve” of Congress.
“Congressional approval ratings are almost always at or below presidential approval ratings,” noted Mr. Orlando. “Voters tend to approve the job that their own member of Congress is doing, while blaming all of the maladies of the institution on the other 434 House representatives that they don’t have a hand in electing.”
The Florida voter survey of 400 adults was conducted December 1-8 and has a margin of error of 5 percent.
