A new poll shows how little respect Americans have for Congress — and it’s bad news for career politicians like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Voters agree that U.S. congressmen don’t even like their own country.
A majority of likely voters say that members of Congress “hate our country,” according to a recent Rasmussen poll.
This is worse than just having a negative approval rating. Already, four out of five U.S. citizens disapprove of the job Chuck and Nancy are doing.
But this poll shows that most voters believe the very worst about Congressional Democrats.
That’s good news for President Trump, who has made the party’s left-wing hatred of America—and its socialist and abortion extremism—a major campaign theme.
He accused the Democrats of having a smoldering hatred of their own country during his two-hour-plus speech at CPAC on March 2.

“Right now we have people in Congress that hate our country. You know that,” Trump said.
“We can name every one of them, if they want,” he said. “They hate our country.”
Now 51% of Americans agree—and another 15% of likely voters say they aren’t sure if Congress loves America or not.
The Democrats can thank themselves for digging their way into this hole by elevating radicals or socialists as their spokesmen.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said just this weekend that “where we are” as Americans “is garbage.”
That comes after AOC said the United States needs to apologize for its shameful history—just like Nazi Germany did!
The congresswoman said the U.S. needs to “look at, for example, Germany, and how they’ve been able or they’re attempt to try to heal after the Holocaust.”
“Germany paid reparations and they went through that process and they had that truth-telling process.” And it’s time that “America tells the truth about itself,” she said on Martin Luther King Day.
This is the same woman that the chairman of the Democratic Party, Tom Perez, said “represents the future of our party.”
But conservatives say that her hatred of America looks more like the Democratic Party’s present.
“We’re not going to make America great again,” said Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, last August. “It was never that great.”
Even when Democrats try to apologize, they can’t help condemning their country, according to talk show host Mark Levin.
Instead of condemning Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for saying that rich Jews own Congress, he said, the Democrats took aim at…you.
“This resolution, cobbled together by the Democrat party leadership—which includes Jewish Americans—did not condemn Omar, (Rashida) Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez” or even anti-Semitism, he said.
“You know what it condemned? The American people.”
The Democrats’ watered down resolution “condemned the American people as an anti-Semitic people, which we are not. As a racist people, which we are not. As a homophobic people, which we are not. And down the list.”
“The hate-America Democrats passed a resolution telling you that America sucks,” Levin continued.
“They hate America,” he said. “That’s a fact.”
American voters may think Democrats couldn’t care less about their country based on how they react to the middle class in middle America.
The Democrats didn’t create jobs in the rust belt—they told Americans that manufacturing jobs were “never coming back.”
They didn’t try to increase struggling workers’ paychecks—they proposed welfare for people unwilling to work.
They didn’t try to stop gangs and drugs from flooding depressed neighborhoods—their top concern was giving amnesty to illegal aliens.
Democrats’ anti-Americanism is nothing new. Ronald Reagan’s former UN ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick, who was once a Democrat herself, said in 1984 that Democrats “always blame America first.”
It’s not just party leaders—the rank-and-file members of the Democratic Party have a beef with the United States, as well.
Less than one-third of Democrats—and less than one out of four liberals—are “extremely proud” to be Americans.
The new poll shows Americans aren’t very proud of them, either!
