The Republican Party isn't spared from the public's wrath, either, especially after forcing the first federal government shutdown in 17 years. Only 22 percent of those surveyed view the the GOP favorably, while 53 percent view it unfavorably, according to the poll.

Looking to the 2014 Congressional mid-term election, just 29 percent of those surveyed said their member of Congress deserves reelection, the lowest level since 1992.

The poll was conducted Oct. 25-28 and surveyed 800 adults (including 240 cell phone-only respondents), with a margin of error of plus-minus 3.5 percentage points.
