A majority of voters say they do not think it’s likely that the new Congress will do much to fix America’s problems; nor do they think that Congress members care about voter concerns.
That's according to Rasmussen Reports.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) say they don’t believe Congress will address the nation’s most important problems, including 57% who say it’s "not at all likely."
The survey finds that 40% of likely US voters say it’s likely Congress will seriously address the most important problems facing our nation, including 13% who think it’s "very likely."
Last February, just 30% expected Congress would address America’s most important problems.
Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters say they believe most members of Congress don’t care what their constituents think, and only 22% say they think most Congress members do care what their constituents think.
Fourteen percent (14%) are not sure.
These findings have changed little since June 2021.

Because they prove time & time again that they don’t listen to us. If they listened to “the people” McCarthy would have never been speaker! The omnibus Bill wld have never passed. Wall wld be finished at the border. No mandates wld have been imposed! They don’t give a crap about the Citizens! Only world domination or $ in their pockets! It’s obvious!

For years we got questionaires asking our opinions. We saw many people campaign for office and win and then forget all they promised to do. I came to the conclusion that we only get asked the questions so they can gauge how well their propaganda is working.
Hmmm....I never thought of that. Good point, Ruth!
Did you ever get one of those questionaires that did NOT ask for a donation?
IMO they care nothing about your thinking as evidenced by the way the questions are worded; clearly favoring the party that sent out the questionaire.
On the other hand, they care deeply about the $5-$500 you may donate!
A more interesting poll, at least to me, would be what percentage of those who believe congress does not care what they think vote for the incumbents!
Statistics show that 92% won reelection in 2022 nationwide; 93% in 2020 and it was 92% in 2018. Incumbent reelection rarely falls below 90% and has been as high as 98%.
I have only voted for the incumbent twice in my life, one got reelected president and the other; well he is not our president today!
