The problem is that,
while 9 out of 10 Americans agree that Congress is just a bunch of
bastards, 9 out of 10 of them don't care if their bastard is good at
bringing home more of the tax booty than the other bastards get. "Yes,"
they say, "he's a bastard --- but he's OUR bastard."
The overall approval rating is not as useful as, say, approval ratings
for each congressman and senator, with rankings by constituents for
their own representatives and by non constituents for each of the other
representatives. Of course, demographics would be instructive as well,
such as party affiliation, age, gender, occupation, voter status, etc.
Zogby ought to run one of those, though I'm sure there needs to be a
sponsor to pay for it.
