Congress, the N.C. General Assembly remain unloved

Is it even still news that people don’t like Congress?

According to the Elon Poll, 83% of registered voters in N.C. who responded said they disapproved of Congress. Only 8% approved. That’s essentially unchanged from November.

The N.C. General Assembly fares better, with a 28% approval rating. (46% disapprove and 26% don’t know.) Even though the legislature hasn’t been in session for months, that’s a decline of 4 percentage points from November.

The only significant demographic breakout for the state legislature is the one you’d expect – politics. Thirty-nine percent of Republicans approve of the legislature’s work, compared with 25% of Democrats and 22% of Independents. It makes sense, given that the Republicans control the legislature.

When he campaigns for the U.S. Senate, Thom Tillis may want to avoid trumpeting that he is the speaker of the N.C. House.
