55% Approve of Their Representative

Although there is much talk about low approval ratings for Congress as a whole, the only number that is truly meaningful is the approval rating that people give their own Members of Congress.

This year, that number is pitifully low, at 55%. Take into account the high numbers that most safe incumbents generally get, and you have many Members scoring below 50%.

However, incumbents aren't the only ones that voters are ambivalent about. Only 48% of voters believe that Democrats offer a clear solution to Iraq and 47% say they do not.
