Congress Elections Poll

Poll: Americans See Failure in Congress They Just Elected

Picard and Riker Facepalm

According to a new poll CNN/ORC poll, most Americans are under no illusions about the incoming Congress even though we just elected them.

The poll finds that 50 percent of adults says Republican control of the House and Senate will be bad for the country, compared to 44 percent who says it will be good.

Fifty-two percent says there will be more gridlock with a Republican Congress, while just 9 percent says there will be less. Thirty-seven percent says there will be no difference.

The public has a more negative view of Republican gains this November than it did of other recent midterm elections.

I feel like this would be hard for a foreigner to understand. It may be difficult to understand even if you are an American.

The electorate is incoherent.
