Obama, Congress in tubes, Zimmerman verdict split

How popular is President Obama compared to U.S. Congress?


How do Americans feel about the direction of the country?  How do Americans feel about the recent Zimmerman case?

Based upon numbers presented by Ron Faucheux, President of Clarus, in his "Lunchtime Politics" poll surveys, there are some interesting and perhaps surprising numbers.

(down 2 from yesterday; down 1 from a week ago)

Average of 2 polls:

15% approve
73% disapprove
Average of 3 polls:

Right direction 31%
Wrong track 58%
Among U.S. adults

"There is a case in Florida in which a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, shot and killed an unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin. As far as you've heard do you think this shooting was justified or unjustified, or do you not know enough about it?"


All adults: 26%/40%
Whites: 33%/33%
African Americans: 5%/87%
Hispanics: 16%/34%
"Do you approve or disapprove of the jury's verdict last week finding Zimmerman not guilty in Martin's death?"


All adults: 41%/41%
Whites: 51%/31%
African Americans: 9%/86%
Hispanics: 24%/50%
"Do you think blacks and other minorities receive equal treatment as whites in the criminal justice system or not?"

(Yes, receive/No, don't receive)

All adults: 45%/50%
Whites: 54%/41%
African Americans: 8%/86%
Hispanics: 36%/60%
