14 things Americans like more than Congress right now

Katie LaPotin, Red Alert Politics, October 8, 2013

Americans really don’t like Congress right now.

According to a Public Policy Polling study released Tuesday, just 8 percent of registered voters nationwide approve of the job Congress is doing.

To put that into perspective, Americans have a higher opinion of the following 14 things than they do Congress:


Wall Street

Wall Street Sign




Preparation H cream

Jury Duty

Court gavel

Dog Poop

Pet Waste Station poop

Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus



The Internal Revenue Service

IRS Internal Revenue Service

Their Mother-in-law

Grandmother and grandson

The Department of Motor Vehicles

Massachusetts DMV



Public Radio Fundraising Drives

There are a few things that the American people like less than Congress, however. They include Russian President Vladimir Putin, “twerking” extraordinaire Miley Cyrus (as well as the dance move itself), former N.Y.C. Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, the Ebola virus, serial killer Charles Manson, actresses Lindsey Lohan and Honey Boo Boo, the drug heroin and the nation of Syria.

Public Policy Polling surveyed 502 registered voters nationwide via telephone from October 4-6, 2013. The margin of error for the study is +/- 4.4 percent at a 95 percent confidence level.
