Public Policy Polling's latest survey shows that only 9 percent of Americans have a favorable view of Congress compared to 85 percent with an unfavorable view and 6 percent who are unsure.
PPP decided to test Congress' popularity against 26 different items.
They found that people preferred quite a few unpleasant things, such as lice, cockroaches, root canals, colonoscopies, traffic jams to Congress.
From Public Policy Polling’s website (Jan. 8):
"Here's what we found:
It's gross to have lice but at least they can be removed in a way that given the recent reelection rates members of Congress evidently can't: Lice 67 Congress 19
Brussel sprouts may have been disgusting as a kid, but evidently they're now a lot less disgusting than Congress: Brussel Sprouts 69 Congress 23
The NFL replacement refs may have screwed everything up, but voters think Congress is screwing everything up even worse: Replacement Refs 56 Congressmen 29 (the breakdown among Packers fans might be a little bit different)."
