Americans may be sharply divided on many fronts but they can agree when it comes those who run the government.

Congress stinks and anyone who seeks or holds public office ain’t that hot either.

Gallup’s latest poll says 81 percent of Americans are unhappy with how the country is bgeing run — the highest level of disapproval ever recorded by the veteran polling organization.

Unhappiness runs highest among Republicans where 92 percent say they are fed up even though the GOP controls the House of Representatives.

Among Democrats, dissatisfaction stands at 65 percent.

A record high 69 percent express “little or no confidence” in Congress.

Public anger, however, isn’t just directed at Congress as a whole.  Some 53 percent say they have “little or no confidence” in men and women who either seek or hold public office.
