New Poll Says, Take Heart Congress! You're Still More Popular than Putin
Just 21% of Americans have a favorable view of Wall Street, compared with one-third who have a negative view.
But that 12 percentage point differential means Wall Street isn’t as unpopular as both Democrats in Congress, who have higher favorability ratings but also higher unfavorability ratings, and Republicans in Congress, who are viewed less positively than Wall Street and far more negatively.
No wonder "79 percent of respondents are dissatisfied with the U.S. political system, including nearly half who are very dissatisfied." And 71 percent of them pin that on the "inability of elected officials in Washington to get things done to improve the economy." What does that mean for November? Pollster Peter Hart isn't sure: "We’re unhappy, but we aren’t coalescing around an issue."
