All-Time Low

Congressional lawmakers frequently accuse President Obama of having a poor job-creation record, but they may want to worry about their own positions. Just 10 percent of Americans approve of Congress, according to a Gallup survey released Aug. 14. It's the lowest reading in Gallup's 38-year history of asking the question and ties with February's all-time low.  (Photo: AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
