Nearly half of likely U.S. voters say neither the Democrat Party nor the Republican Party is the party that represents the American people, a new Rasmussen Reports survey finds.

Forty-seven percent of the 1,000 likely voters polled in the survey, conducted August 12-13, 2019, agreed when asked the following question:

“Is it fair to say that neither party in Congress is the party of the American people?”

  • Agree: 47%
  • Disagree: 35%
  • Undecided: 17%

Since Rasmussen began asking the question in 2010, agreement that neither party is the party of the people has ranged from a high of 53% in 2014 to a low of 41% last year.

The latest survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
