It’s no surprise that Congress’ approval numbers have dropped significantly since the fiscal cliff debacle. But what’s surprising is exactly how unpopular the legislative body has become. To put things in perspective, Congress is currently more unpopular than even the much-hated rock band Nickelback. Now that’s saying something.
According to Public Polling Policy, which recently surveyed 830 American voters, 85 percent said they were unhappy with Congress, and found the lawmaking branch less popular than telemarketers, root canals, NFL replacement refs, lice, colonoscopies, political pundits, carnies, traffic jams, cockroaches, Donald Trump, France, Genghis Khan, used car salesmen and brussels sprouts. And yes, Congress is even worse than Nickelback, said participants. Ouch.
What's worse than Nickelback?
I suppose the unimaginable has happened. I never thought I'd see the day that some one/some thing could be more hated than Nickelback.
IDK.... I still hate Nickelback more than I hate congress.
It's a tough call though, they're pretty close.
