People still hate Congress.
A Jan. 7-10 Gallup poll, taken a few days after the 113th Congress convened, found Congress' approval rating at a dismal 14 percent.
And, the survey said, three-fourths think the "way politics works in Washington" is harmful to the country.
The 14 percent rating for Congress is not a new low. That was set last August at 10 percent.
"In the broadest sense, one bit of good news for the new Congress is that its current job approval ratings are so low that they have practically nowhere to go but up," a Gallup analysis found. Disappproval is at 81 percent.
2012's average was 15 percent, lowest in the survey's 38 years. And, a Gallup analysis found, "2013 appears to be a continuation of 2012's historically negative attitudes toward Congress. Overall, Americans have been significantly more likely to disapprove than approve of Congress over the decades."
Average congressional approval since such polls began in 1974 is 33 percent.
