Hey, Congress: Nobody Likes You

NBC and The Wall Street Journal are out with a new poll this evening, but the WSJ has already given us a sneak peek. And guess what? Voters don't like anyone right now. Nobody. Surprise! (Yeah, I'm not surprised either.) Congressional approval is down to just 17 percent, while 50 percent of respondents would like to throw everybody out—Republicans and Democrats alike—and start with a completely new Congress. Makes those heady days of 31 percent congressional approval seem peachy.

There's no clear upshot here for health-care reform. At this stage it's damned if you do, damned if you don't. So I guess if you're one of those nervous Democrats worried about going on the record to support reform, you could rest easy knowing that your constituents will want to throw you out no matter how you vote.
