Republican and GOP-leaning voters are losing faith in Congress faster than they are in President Donald Trump, a new poll shows.

The survey was posted on Twitter by Tony Fabrizio - the president's pollster during his campaign, Axios reported.

The poll found 81 percent of Republicans surveyed approved of Trump in June; 75 percent did so in August; 19 percent disapproved in June, while 25 percent did so in August.

But polled about the GOP-majority Congress, 68 percent said they approved in June but just 54 percent did so in August, while 32 percent disapproved of Congress in June and 46 percent gave a thumbs-down this month.

Axios pointed to a possible reason for the blowback: the Republican-controlled Senate fell one vote short in July of passing a bill that would have repealed elements of Obamacare — failing to deliver on a key promise they have made to voters over the past seven years.
