While Congress loses the popularity contest to other such things that American detest as root canals, colonoscopies and NFL replacement refs they do edge out ahead of Lindsey Lohan and the ebola virus… so YEAH! Congress, good on ya!
Congress more popular than Kardashians, Lohan, gonorrhea
Those are the findings of the latest they-have-way-too-much-fun-over-there survey by Public Policy Polling, which found that the legislative branch’s approval rating is mired at 9 percent. A whopping 85 percent of respondents said they disapproved. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
Public Policy Polling pitted Congress against a series of unpleasant things or unpopular people, and the results were not flattering for lawmakers. This will come as no surprise to some of the legislative branch’s critics, including Republican Sen. John McCain, who has said that only blood relatives and paid staffers think Congress is doing a good job.
