(Newser) – Congress is wrapping up a spectacularly unproductive year, as the Huffington Post notes, so why not end the year with a spectacularly dismal public-opinion poll: Enter CNN with a survey that finds two-thirds of Americans think this is the worst Congress in their lifetime. Republican or Democrat, old or young, man or woman, doesn't matter. Pretty much everyone thinks the 113th Congress is the pits. About the same percentage say Congress hasn't done anything to fix the nation's problems. Don't expect a 2014 comeback, however. With the midterm elections, Congress will be in session even fewer days next year, notes the Hill.
