    Americans hate Congress more than ever, a Gallup poll released Wednesday revealed.

    The poll, conducted Feb. 2–5, showed that only 10 percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, the lowest number since Gallup started polling the question in 1974. The previous low of 11 percent was recorded in December 2011.

    The 86 percent disapproval rating tied Gallup’s previous record high, also recorded two months ago.

    Broken down by party, Republicans approve of Congress only slightly more than Democrats, 12 percent to 11 percent. Only 8 percent of self-identified independents approve of the job Congress is doing.

    All this begs the question: Who are the 10 percent who actually approve of Congress’s job performance?

    Vastly outnumbered by Socialists/Progressives & Neocons. Maybe one day they will rebuild our nation though. I hope so anyway.

    I'd say there are more hostility towards the senate than the house. The tea party did what it was supposed to and why the people elected them in, put the brakes on democrat spending and unconstitutional legislation. The big ding will happen in the senate in november, not the house.
