A majority of Americans agree: this is the worst Congress ever.

That’s according to a new CNN poll out Thursday, which found two-thirds of Americans surveyed agreeing that the current Congress is the worst in their lifetime. Nearly three-quarters of respondents — rich and poor, young and old, Democrats and Republicans — agreed this is a “do-nothing” Congress.

Fewer than 60 bills have been signed into law this year, the first year of the 113th Congress ahead of what’s likely to be an even slower 2014, with lawmakers focused on the midterm elections. At that pace, this Congress is on track to be the least productive in at least 40 years.
