Congress in free fall

According to a December 9-12 poll by NBC/WSJ of 1,006 voters nationwide, just 25% approve of the job Congress is doing.

And poxes all around:

But the poll finds that a whopping 79 percent believe both political parties have an equal problem with corruption and illegal activities. Just 12 percent say Republicans have a bigger problem, while 5 percent say Democrats have the bigger problem.

“Corruption is not just something that people place on Republicans,” says Hart, the Democratic pollster. “Most people see it as both parties.”

Time for someone to come up with an agenda, eh?

One other note: there's no way to get to 79% of Americans without substantial numbers of Republican and Democratic voters. Both parties have a problem with their base on this issue.
