In what may be one of the most unsurprising Rasmussen survey results ever, likely voters who identify as Democrats “feel more represented by Congress.”
That would figure, since Democrats currently hold the majority on Capitol Hill.
According to Rasmussen, 46 percent of Democratic voters “say the average Democrat in Congress is about the same as them in political terms, while just 31% of Republican voters feel that way about the average Republican in Congress.”

Conversely, 41 percent of voters “believe it is fair to say that neither party in Congress is the party of the American people.”
“That’s down from 47% two years ago,” Rasmussen said. “Thirty-eight percent (38%) disagree, while 21% are undecided.”
The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on Aug. 8-9, 2021, according to Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
Democrats have the House majority with Nancy Pelosi serving as speaker, and over in the Senate, Chuck Schumer is majority leader. Vice President Kamala Harris serves as Senate president.
“Voters not affiliated with either of the major parties (53%) are more likely than Democrats (38%) and Republicans (37%) to agree that neither party in Congress represents the American people,” the poll revealed. “Among all voters, only 27% think the average Democrat in Congress is about the same as them in political terms.”
Meanwhile, only 24 percent feel that way politically about the average Republican in Congress, the survey found.
But here’s something that should amount to a warning to Democrats. A majority of Likely Voters (55%) say the average Democrat in Congress is more liberal than they are, Rasmussen’s survey discovered. That number includes 32 percent of Democratic voters, as well as 75 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of unaffiliated, or Independent, voters.
On the other hand, 39 percent of voters think the average Congressional Republican “is more conservative than they are.” This contingent includes 23 percent of Republican voters, 55 percent of Democrats and 38 percent of Independents.
And here’s a stunner: 24 percent of all voters “say the average Republican in Congress is more liberal than they are.”
