Low Expectations for New Congress
Wednesday, January 04, 2023
It’s not likely Congress will do much to fix America’s problems, according to a majority of voters, who also don’t believe Congress cares what they think.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s likely Congress will seriously address the most important problems facing our nation, including 13% who think it’s Very Likely. Fifty-seven percent (57%) don’t believe Congress will address the nation’s most important problems, including 57% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Last February, just 30% expected Congress would address America’s most important problems. L (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 900 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on December 28-30, 2022 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
