Another slap upside the face for the people we keep electing

banging_head_on_the_wall_tPublic Policy Polling has again asked America how we’re feeling about our Congress Critters. I know you already know, but just for fun . . .

Our newest national poll finds that Congress only has a 9% favorability rating with 85% of voters viewing it in a negative light. We’ve seen poll after poll after poll over the last year talking about how unpopular Congress is but really, what’s the difference between an 11% or a 9% or a 7% favorability rating? So we decided to take a different approach and test Congress’ popularity against 26 different things. And what we found is that Congress is less popular than cockroaches, traffic jams, and even Nickelback.

What’s it going to take? (The whole embarrassment is here.)

And what’s Nickelback?
