Check Out This Poll On Congressional Popularity

 

 

 

    Admittedly this poll is from very early in 2013 and so does not exactly reflect current trends regarding Congress but we found it enlightening nevertheless . As a matter of fact recent polls have shown Congress to be even less popular than the 9% that this poll gives them credit for . Ah , for the good ol’ days .

    As we know the most recent polls show our illustrious leaders with a 6% approval rating which makes the results of the above referenced one even more startling … Congress even at 9% approval was found to be less popular than a host of common pests , maladies and annoyances … read on and soak in the love felt by the American public for our elite leadership .

 

 

” Facing low approval ratings after a historically unproductive 112th  session and a series of last-minute showdowns over fiscal matters, Congress is now less popular than root canals, NFL replacement referees, head lice, the rock band Nickelback, colonoscopies, carnies, traffic jams, cockroaches, Donald Trump, France, Genghis Khan, used-car salesmen and Brussel sprouts.


    When asked if they have a higher opinion of either Congress or a series of unpleasant or disliked things, voters said they had a higher opinion of root canals (32 for Congress and 56 for the dental procedure), NFL replacement refs (29-56), head lice (19-67), the rock band Nickelback (32-39), colonoscopies (31-58), Washington DC political pundits (34-37), carnies (31-39), traffic jams (34-56), cockroaches (43-45), Donald Trump (42-44), France (37-46), Genghis Khan (37-41), used-car salesmen (32-57), and Brussels sprouts (23-69) than Congress.

 

 

    On the plus side , Congress did manage to be more popular than the ebola virus , gonorrhea and meth labs , but if you can’t beat out cock roaches and head lice it’s time to retire …
