What do you think of the job Congress is doing?

Pollsters ask that question quite a bit, just as they ask people what they think of the job the president is doing.

In five separate polls, disapproval rating is at 80 percent or higher. The lowest ever according to the New York Times poll; pretty near the bottom says Gallup.

But that's not the surprising thing. It seems that the real surprise is where the pollsters found 10-15 percent of people who say they approved of the job Congress is doing.
