Americans Down on Congress, OK With Own Representative

Americans continue to express frustration with Congress: 16% approve of the job it is doing, essentially the same as in April. …

Although Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of the job Congress in general is doing, voters re-elect most members of Congress in every election. This phenomenon is partly explained by the finding that Americans have significantly more positive views of their own representative than they do of Congress overall. [cont.]
