Congress: Less popular than cockroaches, more popular than gonorrhea according to poll

Most people know that the US Congress is wildly unpopular with a favorable rating hovering in the high single digits; however the results of a Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey published Jan.8  puts that number in a whole different light.

Think of some of the most vile, revolting and annoying things and put them up against Congress and see how they do–well, thats exactly what PPP did.

Here are some of the person(s), places or things that survey takers found less unpleasant that the Congress: root canals, cockroaches, NFL replacement refs, Nickelback, brussel sprouts, Donald Trump and  Genghis Khan. Get the point?

However, survey takers did have a more favorable opinion of Congress than John Edwards, ebola virus, North Korea, the  Kardashians, telemarketers and gonorrhea.

“We all know Congress is unpopular,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “But the fact that voters like it even less than cockroaches, lice, and Genghis Khan really shows how far its esteem has fallen with the American public over the last few weeks.”
