The "less than do nothing" Tea-Publican Congress is the "Worst. Congress. Ever." Congress' Approval Poised to Be Lowest in an Election Year (September 2012):
Thirteen percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, the lowest Gallup has measured this late in an election year. The prior lows were 18% in 1992, 2008, and 2010.
In the Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll released on Tuesday, WSJ/NBC Poll: Majority favor one party control:
A majority of voters want one party to control Congress and the White House next year, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll, a remarkable opinion shift that suggests deep frustration with Washington gridlock.
The Journal survey of registered voters, to be released in full at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on WSJ.com, found 52% want effectively one party to rule Washington, with 39% wanting a divided government. It’s the first time a majority of voters supported the idea in the Journal poll going back to the mid-1980s.
The Republican brand has taken a severe hit thanks to the radical extremism of the Tea Party, according to the new ABC News/Washington Post polls. More voters are self-identifying as Democratic voters in polls. Democrats have an advantage in generic congressional polling (h/t Daily Kos).
Gee, I can't imagine why the public is upset with the obstructionist Tea-Publicans blocking every job creation bill with a record number of senate filibusters and actively sabotaging the economy with their failed "austerity" economic measures for partisan political posturing. This Tea-Publican Congress got elected on the fraudulent promise of "Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!" in 2010, yet they have done nothing to create jobs. Rather the religious right has passed dozens of bills placing new restrictions on abortion and access to contraception, and voting 33 times to repeal "ObamaCare." Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs?
As I have said before, "Not One Tea-Publican in 2012" -- kick em' all out! Give President Obama a Democratic Senate and Congress.
