The latest poll numbers from Rasmussen Reports had me chuckling initially. But after you think about the fact that these people are running the country, it's scary.
Here are the numbers: only 27% of likely voters polled are even somewhat confident that Congress knows what it's doing when addressing the nation's economic challenges. Only 6% are very confident that Congress knows what it's doing.
In analyzing the numbers, Scott Rasmussen said, "Most Americans have come to believe that the political system is broken, that most politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers. Forty-one percent of voters say that a group of people randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress."
A few other numbers from the poll: 44% strongly disapprove of President Obama's job performance, 24% strongly approve. Overall, Obama's approval rating is 42% with 56% disapproving. Also, only 49% of Democrats strongly approve of Obama, down from a high of 65%. Sixty-three percent of voters nationwide now favor repealing the health care law, the highest level of support for repeal yet measured.
