Congress' Approval lowest in Gallup history

Yikes! and they're just getting started. From USA Today:

Just 14% of Americans have a great deal or quite a lot of
confidence in Congress.
This 14% Congressional confidence rating is
the all-time low for this measure, which Gallup initiated in 1973. The
previous low point for Congress was 18% at several points in the period of time
1991 to 1994.

All-time low? Doesn't bode well for the future of Democracy in America, especially when Republicans are getting heat for their support of amnesty.

Also, Ramesh Ponnuru at National Review comments "If the public is just unhappy with all the politicians, they may take it out on the party they perceive to be in power—and that is still the Republicans. "

But, Mark Noonan sees "an opportunity here for Republicans to capitalise on."

Plus, only 3% approve of Congress' handling of immigration.
