Putting it Together

so I have posted a few photos of graphs that I've found while watching the news, so I wanted to make a single post that shows how they relate to each other ...

first here is a photo of a graph showing how people have felt about Congress over the years - remember that Congress determines taxing/spending/unemployment benefit funds.

I added in the breaks by Presidential terms (colored/named) so its easier to get an idea of what was going on at the time .... sorry its fuzzy

Basically what it says is that under Bush2, 30% of those polled thought Congress was doing a good job -- and now under Obama, only 11% think they are doing okay ... note that the polls tend to be taken just before an election - which would mean that there was almost a 20% drop in confidence since the Dems have taken total control of DC.

Interesting when you compare it to these two charts as well:

It seems that as Unemployment goes up, the less people like congress -- and it also appears that the longer people stay on Benefits the less they like congress ... BUT - this last chart does not tell how many weeks people were allowed to collect.
