People don't like Congress, and nearly half don't like Republicans, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
The Jan. 12-15 survey found 14 percent approve of the job Congress is doing, while 81 percent disapprove.
And, the survey found, 49 percent have a negative view of the Republican Party, the party's worst showing since 2008. 26 percent have a positive view.
Democrats do somewhat better, with 44 percent having a favorable view and 38 percent unfavorable.
Also not popular with the public: The Tea Party movement, the conservative grassroots movement that helped elect dozens of Republicans to Congress in 2010. Its popularity hit an all time low, as 23 percent regard it favorably.
