(CNSNews.com) – Most people prefer lice, cockroaches and colonoscopies to Congress, according to a new national poll released Tuesday.
Congress only has a nine percent favorability rating, according to the latest national poll by Public Policy Polling, which tested the popularity of Congress against 26 different things, including brussel sprouts, root canals, and traffic jams.
“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.”
