Congress continues to earn mediocre reviews for its job performance, with voters more convinced than ever that it’s unlikely to focus on the country’s biggest problems.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 30% of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress is likely to seriously address the most important problems facing our nation. Sixty-eight percent (68%) consider that unlikely. These findings includes only 10% who feel Congress is Very Likely to tackle the big issues and 36% who say it’s Not At All Likely to do so.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 3 and 6, 2019 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.
