Gallup: ratings "improved since Congress passed healthcare reform legislation"
Americans' approval of the job Congress is doing remains low, at 23%, but has improved since Congress passed healthcare reform legislation.
The 16% approval rating in March was just two points above the all-time-low 14% approval recorded in July 2008. Even with the significant jump this month, the 23% reading from the new April 8-11 Gallup poll remains well below Congress' 34% historical average approval rating.
In the past month, approval ratings of Congress among self-identified Democrats have surged from 24% to 41%.
Independents' ratings also increased, from 13% to 20%. Meanwhile, Republicans' ratings fell significantly, from 14% to 7%.
