President Trump more popular than Congress

Approval of US Congress by Republicans Falls to New 2017 Low of 16% - Poll

Approval of US Congress by Republicans Falls to New 2017 Low of 16% - Poll

Approval of the current Republican leaders in Congress has dropped from 39% in January to just 24% now.

The affirmative vote looms large for 21 GOP lawmakers, including Young, who represent competitive congressional districts where Democrat Hillary Clinton won or came close in last year's presidential election.

Numerous respondents listed U.S. President Donald Trump, specifically, as the country's top problem, the latest Gallup poll showed.

Among those who approve of Trump, 76 percent disapprove of Congress.

Factors that may have an impact on this choice include the Senate failing to pass a bill to repeal Obamacare, and Congress passing sanctions against Russian Federation over meddling in the USA 2016 presidential election, Gallup analyst Art Swift said. "Struggling put our children's goals out of reach and health care costs go up, but Jose Felix Diaz supports Trump's every move, including his plan to slash Medicare, charge older Americans an age tax, and cut coverage for pre-existing conditions". That is the single most unpopular element of the health care law and might even garner support from across the aisle - even Democrats have admitted it needs changes. After using Twitter to blame McConnell for last month's Senate failure despite years of GOP vows to repeal it, Trump suggested Thursday that McConnell should perhaps step aside if he can't push that and other legislation through his chamber.

The advertisement - paid for by the Florida Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee - links Diaz, a Miami-Dade Republican, to Trump on healthcare policy.

Congress left for its August recess without passing any sweeping, comprehensive legislation, failing in its attempt to pass something on health care and leaving tax reform on the docket. Still, eight in 10 Democrats (81%) say they support the idea. One in seven (15%) focus on the economy, 11% say immigration, 8% say foreign policy and 8% name Donald Trump.

For example, 6 in 10 Republicans and Trump backers want the GOP to continue its repeal and replace drive in Congress. Democrats have been optimistic that Trump's unpopularity might spark a wave election in 2018, but the electoral map is unfriendly so far and Republicans have held seats in tight special elections. Independents favor Democrats by 9 points, 46% to 37%. Still, midterm electorates typically lean more Republican than all Americans.

The poll results are based on telephone interviews conducted between August 2 and 6, with a random sample of 1,017 adults across the country.
