That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that only 19% of likely U.S. voters believe the average member of Congress listens most to the voters he or she represents.
Sixty-seven percent (67%) think the average member listens most to party leaders in Congress, and another 14% are not sure.
That’s actually an improvement from the 10% who thought Congress members listened most to voters when we last asked this question in 2015.
The Declaration of Independence says that governments derive their authority “from the consent of the governed.”
Only 25% of voters believe the federal government today has the consent of the governed, while 59% think it does not.
Another 16% are not sure.
These findings have barely changed since January 2020.
