Twenty-four percent of respondents approved of GOP leaders in Congress while 71 percent disapproved.

Despite their party controlling both chambers of Congress, only one in six Republicans (16%) approve of the job Congress is doing, the lowest yet in 2017.

On a national basis, 16% of US adults approve of Congress, statistically similar to the 20% recorded in July but the lowest rating the body has received to date in 2017. According to the report, the last time the Senate had such a strong Republican bias was in 1913 - the year direct Senate elections were ratified.

The majority of Americans (56%) want the two parties to work together to make changes to health care policy, according to CNN's survey. That's down slightly from ten years ago, before the passage of the ACA, when 64% supported the idea. Fewer than 5% named each of several other issues, like the environment, civil rights, government spending and education. "Plain and simple, electing more Trump Republicans like Jose Felix Diaz will devastate South Florida's middle-class", said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Johanna Cervone in a statement.
