Congress' latest job approval rating fell 6 points in just the past month, down to 18%--the lowest level in more than a year.  According to Gallup, nearly 8 in 10 Americans (78%) now disapprove of the work of Congress.



This decline in congressional approval is largely explained by a sharp drop in approval among rank-and-file Democrats, from 45% in January to 30% today. The slight changes in approval among Republicans and independents are not statistically significant.
