    Americans' evaluation of the job Congress is doing is the worst Gallup has ever measured, with 13% approving.

    84% disapprove

    Congressional Job Approval Ties Historic Low of 13%

    How's that only knowing how to say "no" working for you? Wink wink.

    The most recent Fox News poll had the approval rating at 10%.

    So it's improving ...

    Of course everyone disapproves of "Congress". The Dems hate the Repub House and the Repubs hate the Dem Senate.

    But why would anyone blame congress? Everyone with half a brain knows it is all Obama's fault.

    I think one of the best and most accurate polls are produced by Rasmussen.

    People have a low regard for Congress but they tend to re-elect their representative. This poll is pretty meaningless.

    It's simple enough. When the economy hits rock bottom they blame congress for not doing enough to counter Obama's mismanagement. Democrats have held the majority in the senate for four years. The republican majority in the house is barely 8 months old. Give them a chance.

    Poll shows a new low in Americans’ approval of Congress -- 14%
    October 5,`11 —  New polling shows congressional popularity is at an all-time low of 14 percent. You’d be surprised at some of the things in history that have been more popular than the current Congress.

    I'd gladly trade in Boxer, Feinstein and Pelosi...for starters...

    They obviously make Congress extra sucky...
