Heckuva Job, Harry and Nancy

A relatively senior officeholder once told me that most politicians have a strong need to be liked.

The percentage of voters who give Congress good or excellent ratings has fallen to single digits for the first time in Rasmussen Reports tracking history. This month, just 9% say Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Most voters (52%) say Congress is doing a poor job, which ties the record high in that dubious category.
