Who Works Harder – Trump, Congress or You?

Most voters remain convinced that they work harder than Congress, but they’re less sure when it comes to President Trump.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 15% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the average member of Congress works harder than they do, but that’s up slightly from 10% nearly four years ago. Seventy percent (70%) think they work harder than Congress, down from 76% in the previous survey. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
