Gallup Poll: Congress Poll Numbers Low, Both Parties Suffering

I hear a lot of Democrats state that the sole reason for the extremely low poll numbers Congress has are the fault of the Republicans, who are "blocking" their agenda, which they believe America supports whole-heartedly.

I don't think that's the case.

According to the most recent USA Today/Gallup Poll, the two parties are within the 5 percent margin of error of each other. Republicans drawing an approval rate of 26 percent (68 percent disapproval), Democrats at 30 percent (64 percent disapproval).

Dems might want to start rethinking the blame game, because their overall ineffectiveness and the negative nature of their approach to legislation is turning on them quickly.
