Congress and the Republican party continue to suffer from unfavorability ratings almost a week after the end of the 16-day government shutdown.
Another day, another poll showing Americans are furious at Congress for pushing the country into a 16-day government shutdown that cost the country $24 billion.
A whopping 86% of the public disapproved of the government body, a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday found. A mere 12% of the country approved.
The Republican party also suffered as more than half—54%—of the country believed having GOP leaders in control of the House is “bad for the country.” In addition, 63% of individuals polled voted in favor of replacing House Speaker John Boehner.
The GOP must stop "governing by crisis every two months," host Joe Scarborough said on Tuesday's Morning Joe.
If every member of Congress was replaced, the government body would be "better off," according to 47% of Americans polled in a new USA Today/Princeton University poll. Just 4% said Congress would be "worse off."
In addition, 75% of the public voted "no" to re-elect Republicans to Congress, and 54% for Democrats, according to the CNN/ORC International poll.
Less than half—44%—of Americans approved of President Obama’s job. He earned his highest favorability rating—76%—on the CNN/ORC scale in February 2009. Even still, 44% of Americans surveyed said they had more confidence in Obama than the 31% who said they supported congressional Republicans.
In comparison, 53% of the public had more confidence in then-President Bill Clinton than the 35% who supported Congress in September 1998.
A mere 10% of the public reportedly approved of Congress hours before the shutdown began on Oct. 1. By Oct. 9, just 5% said they supported the decisions being made by government leaders.
