Congress -- Best Forgotten?

Who's never heard of the U.S. Congress? Apparently, 1.2 percent of Iowans. Lucky bastards.

No, really. The topline for this Iowa poll presents a list of political actors and institutions for the traditional "favorability" ranking and, as an option, you could be undecided or "never heard of" the person or institution. Look at #19b. Yup, 1.2 percent, or 6 out 500 likely voters, said they'd never heard of the U.S. Congress.

If only we could all plead such ignorance. Sigh.
