House Speaker Paul Ryan is in serious trouble, as the list of unkept promises in Congress continues to grow and has sent his approval rating plummeting.
According to a new Bloomberg national poll, Ryan’s numbers have completely fallen off the table, with 48 percent viewing him negatively and 34 percent viewing him positively.
A poll in December reflected a 31 percent negative rating and a 47 percent favorable rating for the House speaker.
The newest poll was conducted July 8-12, among 1,001 U.S. adults. The poll’s complete list of questions can be viewed HERE.
Bloomberg reported that the drop in approval for Ryan, 47, is the largest drop among all GOP leaders in the survey, even exceeding the approval decline for the Republican Party, Congress and President Trump.
Pollster J. Ann Selzer explained this by saying that Ryan is in charge of Congress “and Congress is not delivering.”
Ryan started off the year by promising a “quick repeal” of Obamacare. Instead, those efforts have now completely failed.
Among Republicans only, approval for Ryan is also falling, dropping from 67 percent in December to 61 percent in July.
A full 60 percent of those polled said they have a negative view of Congress.
The Bloomberg poll also reports a drop in approval ratings for President Trump. In December, Trump had a 50 percent favorable and a 43 percent unfavorable rating. In the July poll, Trump has a 41 percent favorable and a 55 percent unfavorable rating.
