The poll also found that after a long period which job approval for Democrats in Congress was consistently several points higher than that of Republicans, it is now roughly even with Democrats at 28% approval and Republicans at 27%. Overall, 15% approve of the job Congress is doing.

The interactive poll consisted of 2,084 likely voters and has a margin of error of +/-2.2%.  A sampling of Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the U.S., was invited to participate.  Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender, and education to more accurately reflect the population.
