GOP Approval Takes Double-Digit Nosedive After Trump, Republicans Accomplish Nothing In 100 Days

Published by

The GOP frequently uses the term “death spiral” to describe the Affordable Care Act, but it may be more appropriate to use that phrase to describe the way Americans feel about the Republican-controlled Congress.

According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Monday, “Americans hold dim views of Congress and of House Speaker Paul Ryan” and their disapproval in the Republican Congress has increased by double digits in the past two months.

More from The Wall Street Journal:

Nearly three-quarters of Americans disapprove of Congress’s job performance, up 12 percentage points since February, the poll found. Just one-fifth said they approve of the job Congress is doing, a drop of 9 points.

 

 

Mr. Ryan (R., Wis.) is one focus of growing dissatisfaction, with 40% saying they view the House speaker negatively, compared with 22% who had a positive view—an 18-point gap. In February, unfavorable opinions outweighed positive ones by just 1 point.

The Wall Street Journal also notes that the GOP effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act is likely a core reason why Republicans are seeing their support collapse – just as the party looks to take another shot at dismantling the law.

The GOP-controlled Congress had a poor approval rating to begin with, and as Donald Trump and Republicans have spent the last three-plus months failing to accomplish anything positive for the country, that number is only going to get worse.

After nearly 100 days of full Republican control of the government, Trump and the GOP have worked to roll back health insurance for millions of Americans, dismantle protections for the environment, and stand in the way of a fair investigation into the president’s ties to Russia – among a long list of other damaging policy proposals.

The American people are paying attention, and they clearly don’t like what they see.
