A new survey by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research for Democracy Corps and Women’s Voices. Women Vote Action Fund reveals voters’ growing discontent with Washington. This survey was fielded at a unique time—right after the credit rating downgrade—and we are seeing a uniquely bleak response from the American people. Three quarters of voters now believe the country is on the wrong track, up 14 points since June, and the lowest in our tracking of this question since the 2008 financial crisis.

Key Findings

Both parties in Congress lose ground, but Republicans have born the brunt of the backlash. Two thirds disapprove of House Republicans and 44 percent strongly disapprove- a 7 point surge since June. By a margin of 54 to 36 percent, voters say that the more they hear from House Republicans, the less they like.

The President’s approval rating remains stable, but a striking 53 percent say that they will consider voting for a third party candidate next year.
