Even if you don't like reading about polls, you may enjoy checking this one out.
The Pew Research Center asked 749 Americans to offer just one word to describe their current impressions of Congress.
Turns out no one word dominated the list, but the sentiment was consistent:
Dysfunctional (chosen 21 times.)
Self-serving, self-centered or selfish (19)
Confused, confusing, confusion (15) was tied with incompetent, ineffective and lazy
And some of the terms were just insulting. Check it out here to see the full list.
Meanwhile, the latest Gallup tracking poll finds Congress' approval rating at a skimpy 16 percent.
