Congress Less Popular Than Lice and Cockroaches

musings

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)."
