In case you missed it, Republicans are in control of both chambers of Congress (and have been since January).
But guess which group of voters is least happy with Congress? It's Republicans, according to a new Gallup survey.
Self-loathing, no longer for just the Republicans who are gay.
PRINCETON, N.J. -- Americans' current 11% job approval rating of Congress is its worst rating so far this year. It is also barely better than the all-time low of 9% from November 2013, after the last major government shutdown.
Republicans Least Approving of Congress Among Party Groups
...Frustration with the party leadership may explain why Republicans (8%) are slightly less likely to approve of the job Congress is doing than either independents (13%) or Democrats (11%), even though Republicans have majority control of both houses.
...To put Republicans' unhappiness with Congress in perspective, their 8% approval rating of the GOP-led Congress is essentially the same as the 9% approval rating they gave the Democratic-led Congress at the time of the 2010 midterm elections.
