NBC poll: 17% approve of Congress

From NBC's Mark Murray
If Americans are divided about how their congressman should vote on the health-care bill, the same can't be said for their views on Congress.

According to the new NBC/WSJ poll, whose full results will be released beginning at 6:30 pm ET, only 17% approve of Congress' job.

What's more, given the opportunity, half (50%) say they would vote to defeat every single member of Congress, including their own representative.

Asked if they would still vote to replace every single member of Congress if that resulted in Democrats still controlling Congress, nearly three-quarters (72%) said yes.

And asked if they would still vote to replace every member if that resulted in Republicans controlling Congress, a virtually identical number (73%) said yes.
