    US Congress less popular than cockroaches: poll

    US Congress less popular than cockroaches: poll

    Agence France-Presse | Updated: January 09, 2013 08:24 IST

    Washington: The little loved US Congress, fresh off its fiscal cliff budget crisis, is now less popular than cockroaches and lice, a survey released on Tuesday found.

    The Public Policy Polling survey of 830 Americans from January 3-6 revealed that Congress had hit new lows in the eyes of the same US voters who sent representatives to work there.

    The legislative body proved less popular than traffic jams, Donald Trump, France, lice, Genghis Khan, cockroaches and used car dealers, the poll found.

    "We all know Congress is unpopular," said Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling.

    "But the fact that voters like it less than cockroaches... really shows how far its esteem has fallen with the American public over the last few weeks."
