The Winston Group has been kind enough to provide me with the poll, posted here

This is the problem with your poll: The reporting is one sided and then they poll.
Communications 101—Purpose of the major media is to shape public opinion.
The thing you and others like you do not understand is congress as a collective may have a low rating and be criticized as a group, BUT the ones refusing to go along to get along do represent their constituents who voted for them for those stands. So just having some Ds and Rs in the poll doesn't really show much. The election results are the indicator. So you're criticizing certain constituents.
It also shows how entitlement Americans are just as much PART of the PROBLEM. This is how the welfare state corrupts the people.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
