Congressional approval/popularity ratings

Anyone hear about the poll, ranking Congress in terms of whether or not people liked Congress more than other things?

A new poll shows that Congress is less popular than carnies, root canals and colonoscopies, but more popular than the ebola virus, meth labs and gonorrhea.

Re: Congressional approval/popularity ratings

Would you please explain to me, then how these moron's, who's approval ratings are fairly above dirt, can bargain with a President with an approval rating of 53%? If they don't change their tactics, fast, they will be looking for new jobs next year, count on it!

That's easy.

There is only one President.

If you ask people on the street, if the President is wrong, you will get an answer roughly equal to who voted for him (just over half) who think he's OK

Now, to Congress.  With over 500 members, it is easy to find someone, somewhere, doing something so stupid, you wonder where their brain is at, which can bring an unfavorable rating, to the whole group.

 

A lower opinion than roaches, that isn't good, but if you read the whole poll, Congress is rated lower than France!  Now THATS gotta hurt.

Re: Congressional approval/popularity ratings

You and the Republicans are finding out just how unlame this duck is. His first term he had to puzzy-foot around, to get elected, to the second term, where he is not inhibited by another election. Now, your going to see some progress, the Guns Over People crowd will go along, or next year they are gone!
