84 percent of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing, poll finds

• Washington Post

Lawmakers will return to Washington on Tuesday to begin an election-year work session with low expectations for any significant legislative action, while also receiving low approval ratings for themselves.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows a new high — 84 percent of Americans — disapproving of the job Congress is doing, with almost two-thirds saying they “disapprove strongly.” Just 13 percent of Americans approve of how things are going after the 112th Congress’s first year of action, solidifying an unprecedented level of public disgust that has both sides worried about their positions less than 10 months before voters decide their fates.

It wouldn't surprise me if the poll results were officially used to mean the House, while the people who were polled thought they were being asked about both the Senate and the House - Congress.
