Gridlock in Washington has kept Congress from passing a new budget agreement and it’s costing members their approval ratings. New new survey from Public Policy Poling finds Congress less popular than hemorrhoids but more popular than Honey Boo-Boo. What else are members of Congress less popular than?

The survey determined the approval ratings of several dubious things and you may–or may not–be surprised at the results.

Less Popular Than:

Congress (31%) vs Hemorrhoids (53%)

Congress (40%) vs dog poop (47%)

Congress (41%) vs toenail fungus (44%)

Congress (42%) vs cockroaches (44%)

More Popular Than:

Congress (37%) vs twerking (33%)

Congress (43%) vs zombies (37%)

Congress (46%) vs Miley Cyrus (31%)

Congress (42%) vs Honey Boo Boo (33)

There are even more embarrassing comparisons but since we don’t want to pile on we’ll just stop here.
