It’s almost enough to make you feel sorry for Congress. Almost. Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released the results of a poll pitting Congress against various unlikeables, including lice, brussel sprouts, colonoscopies, NFL replacement refs, traffic jams, the country of France, and the band Nickelback.
Each one of these things outpolled Congress — many of them by a dozen points or more. Still, it’s not entirely bad news for federal legislators. The survey also finds that there are some things people hate more than Congress, including the Kardashians, John Edwards, Fidel Castro, North Korea, and Communism. And, uh, gonorrhea.
