Americans still don’t like Congress much, a new poll finds.

According to a Gallup survey posted Tuesday, Congress is at a 15 percent approval rating. That was the body’s average approval rating throughout 2012, but it’s a point higher than last month’s figure. Eighty-one percent of Americans disapprove of Congress’s job performance.

The poll of 1,015 adults was conducted Feb. 7-10 and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus four percentage points.
