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:
The Internal Revenue Service
The Department of Motor Vehicles
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.
