Entrepreneurs Over Members of Congress

It’s always nice to see on occasion the American people keeping things in the right perspective.

On August 5, Rasmussen Reports released a survey on how Americans view certain professions.

At the very top, 89% viewed small business owners favorably, with only 6% saying unfavorable. Similarly, 89% viewed entrepreneurs (people starting their own businesses) favorably, versus 7% unfavorable.

Small business owners and entrepreneurs even beat out pastors and religious leaders (74% favorable and 19% unfavorable).

Who came in dead last among the professions listed? You guessed it. Members of Congress were viewed unfavorably by 72%, and favorably by only 23%.
