The most recent poll on Congress’ approval rating is from YouGov, and it marks an all time low of 6%. There are countless comparisons to be made with such a low approval rating.

One that stands out most is the comparison to King George’s popularity during the American Revolution. Most historians agree that King George was approved of by between 15-20% of the colonists of European ancestry. That’s more than double Congress’ rating today.

Another poll shows that 29% of voters think an armed revolution will be necessary in the coming years, and it’s not hard to see why.
