(Newser) – This version of Congress hasn't been getting good marks from the public, but a new poll by Rasmussen Reports still has an eye-popping stat on just how deep the frustration goes. In a survey of likely voters, only 5% thought Congress had done a good or excellent job. Not surprisingly, that would be a record. A whopping 68% rated the performance as poor.

You want to get any good done? Vote out YOUR Congressman. That is all you can change. if we all vote the idiots out we will actually get somewhere. However, everyone thinks congress sucks except for THEIR guy. That is how they get ya.

I have to laugh at the silliness of most of these posts. Like Congress can "create" jobs. Are you that stupid? On the other hand, most are that dumb. Estimates range to 75-85% of these same idiots that say they dislike Congress LOVE THEIR OWN CONGRESSMAN. So, this "poll" is irrelevant.....correct?
