2013 could be remembered as the year of the “Do-Nothing” Congress.

That’s the verdict from two-thirds of Americans about the track record of the 113th Congress, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International poll released Thursday also indicates that nearly three-quarters of the public say that this has been a “do-nothing” Congress.

Two-thirds of those questioned said the current Congress is the worst in their lifetime, with 28% disagreeing.

According to the survey, 73% say that this Congress has so far done nothing to address the country’s problems, with one in four disagreeing.

52% say policies of democratic congressional leaders will move the country in the wrong direction.

And 54% say the same thing about President Barack Obama’s policies

The poll was conducted for CNN by ORC International on December 16-19, with 1,035 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.
