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.
