Congress has officially sunk to a new low.
While the approval rating of those on Capitol Hill has been hovering at historically low levels, a new poll shows half of Pennsylvania believes Punxsutawney Phil would be a perfectly suitable — and capable — member of Congress.
Some key findings from Public Policy Polling:
- 59 percent of Pennsylvanians have a favorable opinion of Punxsutawney Phil.
- Only 8 percent believe he’s a reliable indicator of how long winter will last.
- 50 percent say he’d do a better job than most members of Congress.
So there you have it. Here’s one warning for Punxsutawney Phil: If he does get elected and happens to run into New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, don’t let him pick you up.
