New Poll: 74% of voters say Congress is “Unproductive.”


This tidbit from our friends at NBC NEWS: Nearly three-quarters of voters say that the United States Congress has been unproductive this year, including 50 percent who say it’s been very unproductive, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.

By comparison, 19 percent believe it has been productive, and another 3 percent say it’s been very productive.

These numbers come after statistics show that the current Congress (2013-2014) is on pace to be the least productive Congress in the modern era — measured by bills that are signed into law.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll also shows that Americans are divided on congressional control for the upcoming midterm elections. By 43 percent to 41 percent, voters say they want to see congressional Republicans stay in control of the House.
