27% Believe Their Representatives in Congress Care What They Think

Twenty-seven percent (27%) of voters believe that their own representatives in Congress care what they think. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 47% don’t think their representatives care while another 25% are not sure.

Data released earlier showed that most voters (53%) believe their own representative is likely to trade votes for cash.

Men (33%) are more likely than women (22%) to think their representatives care what they think (see crosstab results).

Just 32% of voters think it is even somewhat likely that Congress will successfully address major issues before the 2020 election.
