WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said approval for the U.S. Congress is so low even his 101-year-old mother has withdrawn her support.

McCain, who has often joked that approval for the federal legislative body is down to paid staff members and blood relatives, said following a Tuesday Gallup poll measuring congressional approval at a record low that blood relatives can no longer be counted on, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

"Well, I got a call from my mother who's 101," McCain said, adding the centenarian is upset at the legislative body's recent work, so lawmakers have now "even lost my mother."
