When given the choice between Congress and Nickelback, more American chose the Canadian rock band over the people who are elected to make laws. Public Policy Polling (which is a real thing) matched Congress against various other unpopular subjects.
When given the choice between Congress and the often mocked Nickelback, 39 percent of Americans chose Nickelback and 32 percent chose Congress.
Other unpopular subjects that beat Congress include Carnies, Genghis Khan, Cockroaches, and root canals. Lice destroyed Congress. Only 19 percent of those who were polled choice Congress over lice.
It is not all bad for Congress. They did beat Lindsey Lohan, playground bullies, and the Ebola virus.
Overall, Congress has a 9 percent approval rating. They'd never make it as a wise man.
