Public Policy Polling issued a press release Monday showing the results of their uproariously funny poll questions and answers regarding the likeability of the U.S. Congress after the debacles of the former 112th session.
According to the results, congress’s popularity is quite questionable. Consider the following results showing the crazy things Americans have a higher opinion of than congress:
[Voters] had a higher opinion of root canals (32 for Congress and 56 for the dental procedure), NFL replacement refs (29-56), head lice (19-67), the rock band Nickelback (32-39), colonoscopies (31-58), Washington DC political pundits (34- 37), carnies (31-39), traffic jams (34-56), cockroaches (43-45), Donald Trump (42-44), France (37-46), Genghis Khan (37-41), used-car salesmen (32-57), and Brussels sprouts (23-69) than Congress.
However, there are still some awful people and horrid things people view more unfavorably than congress, like, well, ebola. The following shows what people dislike more than Congress:
Telemarketers (45-35), John Edwards (45-29), the Kardashians (49-36), lobbyists (48-30), North Korea (61-26), the ebola virus (53-25), Lindsay Lohan (45-41), Fidel Castro (54-32), playground bullies (43-38), meth labs (60- 21), communism (57-23), and gonorrhea (53-28).
And with tongue in cheek, but not really, that we’d even think to ask people if they view congress more favorably than STD’s or Lindsay Lohan shows just how much work the new 113th session needs to do to improve their likeability.
