New Congressional (Dis)Approval Poll

Public Campaign Action Fund is now Every Voice. Check out our new website:

AP poll:

Overall, do you approve, disapprove or have mixed feelings about the way Congress is handling its job?

Approve, 34 percent (31)
Disapprove, 63 percent (65)
Mixed feelings, 2 percent (3)
Not sure, 1 percent (2)

And if the election for Congress were held today, would you want to see the Republicans or Democrats win control of Congress?

Republicans, 36 percent
Democrats, 49 percent
Neither (VOLUNTEERED), 12 percent
Not sure, 3 percent

Now, most will focus on the 49-36 advantage Democrats have over Republicans. But 12 percent volunteering "Neither"? Is that high? Seems high to me... Anyone with historical context?
