Gallup Poll: Independents and Republicans Even in Congressional (Dis)Approval

This is the real story from the latest Gallup poll measuring Americans' approval of the Democrat-controlled Congress: independents rate Congress equally as low as do Republicans (the 1% difference is statistically insignificant)
Even though Democrats now control both houses of Congress, the poll shows that only 37% of Democrats approve of the job Congress is doing right now. These marks are, however, significantly better than those given to Congress by independents (24%) and Republicans (25%).
Bottom line: 75% of non-Democrats are unhappy with Queen Nancy's and Prince Consort Harry's work.
