A new poll released Monday found Congress has only a 10 percent approval rating.
The low rating represents a 10-percentage-point-drop since the beginning of September and comes as a government shutdown looks likely. CNN/ORC International poll conducted the survey.
Nearly 90 percent of those polled disapprove of Congress, the highest disapproval rating CNN has ever recorded.
People have also grown increasingly bitter with congressional leadership.
“House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the two party leaders at the center of the budget negotiations that may lead to a shutdown, have become more unpopular since May, and both are facing the highest unfavorable ratings they have ever received in CNN polling,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.
