Americans have a higher opinion of dog poop, zombies and even hemorrhoids than they do of Congress, according to a recent poll.

Released on Tuesday, the poll found that 85 percent of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing, while only 8 percent approve.

While witches and jury duty scored higher than Congress in people’s opinions, the survey found that Americans have a higher opinion of Congress than they do of Honey Boo Boo or Charles Manson.

“Congress having an 8 percent approval rating tells us one thing about how unhappy voters are,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.

“But it’s even more telling that voters have a lower opinion of it than annoyances like the DMV and jury duty, health issues like hemorrhoids and even witches,” Debnam said.

Public Policy Polling surveyed just over 500 voters from Oct. 4 through the 6 through automated telephone interviews.  The survey was not authorized or paid for by any political or campaign organizations.
