Jan. 8 (UPI) -- It looks like constant bickering and political inertia won't win you any love from an exhausted American public. According to Public Policy Polling, only nine percent of voters approve of the way Congress is handling the nation's most pressing issues. So PPP decided to test Congress' favorability against a variety of things Americans tend to disapprove of, from icky bugs to terrible Canadian rock bands.

Here's what Americans like more than Congress:

1. Lice

2. Brussel sprouts

3. NFL replacement refs

At least Congress beat out Gonorrhea, Ebola, Communism and Lindsay Lohan (just barely, at 45 to 41 percent).
