Pond scum (left) and Senator Jeff Flake.
Senator Jeff Flake's approval rating apparently is so low that he's comparing himself to pond scum.

"Nothing like waking up to a poll saying you're the nation's least popular senator," the senator wrote on Facebook. "Given the public's dim view of Congress in general, that probably puts me somewhere just below pond scum."

-Jeff Flake "One of the Most Unpopular Senators"

To Flake's credit, his 32 percent approval rating is above Senator John McCain's 26 percent rating, although Flake's level of disapproval was much higher.

Public Policy Polling found that his recent vote against an amendment to expand background checks was really unfavorable with the public and a big reason for his poor approval rating.

That said, we'd like to know how accurate Flake is being with his recent claims.

Do you have a higher opinion of Senator Flake or pond scum?

i find it interesting no one in congress is disputing what appears to be the first sane thing flake has said since being in office

jeff flake made a good choice when he opposed legislation that would have infringed upon the second amendment and thus violated the the rights of millions of Americans. I don't know much more about him than that but I admire his courage to make a good choice.

You are all engaged in hate speech! You need to stop bing haters and learn how to love and tolerate. Hate speech is not allowed on facebook. Senator Jeff Flake is a human being and should be treated like one.

Pond scum shows very promising results in the manufacturing of bio-fuels.  Mr. Flake, not so much.

Careful Mr, Hendley, Flake is a High Ranking Member of the "Mormon Mafia."

Hey now, pond scum serves a vital purpose in our ecosystem. You don't need to insult it by comparing it to Jeff Flake.

I think most pond scum would be offended by such comparison.

90% support federal background checks? NO WAY. that study came from quinnapiac Univ in Connecticut, sample size 63. NO WAY a sample size that small is accurate.....50% support an assault weapons ban for the most popular rifle in America, used in

Wasn't the gun used in Sandy Hook purchased through the Conn background check system?

Pond scum can be used for bio-diesel.  Flake is 100% useless.  It's not even close!


Now if the question was about having an STD or Jeff Flake, that might be a valid question.

Yep, pond scum has a useful purpose. Flake? Not so much.

not a Flake fan, but his observation of how we all feel about congress in general was pretty dead-on and funny

@danzigsdaddy He made it funny by picking a fluid (pond scum) that is actually more useful and respectable than he is. If he was trying to make a serious point, he would have compared himself to rancid walrus semen.

You shouldn't talk about Russell Pearce's lineage like that.
