What’s more, 51 percent of those said they disapproved “strongly” of the GOP’s actions.

Congressional Democrats didn’t fare much better: 61 percent disapprove of their actions.

President Obama’s approval rating, meanwhile, ticked up slightly, with 45 approving of the way he has handled the negotiations, up from 41 percent last week. He still has an overall 51 percent disapproval rating, with 39 disapproving “strongly.”

  1. You are absolutely right number one 70% of the people in Williamsburg and Burrough Park disapprove of the current administration. In the country , however, 70% disapprove of the Republican congress.

  2. A plague on both of their houses! It feels like the Americans have to stop the kids from fighting, except that the stakes are so high.
