Americans Trust Obama More Than Congressional Republicans Says New Poll

Posted by | December 15, 2010 20:23 | Filed under: Top Stories

An ABC/Washington Post poll reveals Americans believe the president is better able to deal with our problems than is Congress.

Fifty-three percent of those surveyed said they trusted Obama more than Republicans to steer the country, versus 48% who said they trusted Republicans more.

Part of the reason voters may have more faith in Obama than in Republicans is that the current Congress is incredibly unpopular. Only 13% of respondents to a Gallup poll released this morning said they approved of the job Congress is doing, the lowest Congressional approval rating Gallup has ever recorded since they began polling the question in 1974.

Meanwhile, President Obama’s approval rating is a relatively steady 46%, according to the TPM Poll Average. And in today’s poll that found Americans trusted Obama more than Republicans to cope with the nation’s problems, 49% of respondents said they approved of Obama’s job performance, while 47% said they disapproved.
